storaged replaces udisks2

The `udisks2` package provides dynamic storage management functionality to legacy Fedora systems. Most prominently, desktop environments like GNOME udisks to handle removable media, such as USB thumb drives, via a dbus interface.

Because udisks2 does not support more complex storage technologies such as LVM or iSCSI, it is being replaced in Fedora 25 by `storaged`, an enhanced fork of the udisks project. `storaged` is a drop-in replacement for `udisks2`, and the additional functionality allows administrators to use software like `Cockpit` in Fedora Server to manage these advanced storage resources.

Detailed information on the storaged project is available from the upstream site at .
