Fedora Media Writer as Primary Downloadable

The new Fedora Media Writer that is being finished has an overhauled, more user friendly interface. Because USB sticks are the most common way to install Fedora, it should be the primary download option. It cover the whole installation media creation, it lets the user pick the right flavor of Fedora, downloads its image, and copies it to a USB drive.

Replace UDisks2 by Storaged

Storaged extends UDisks2 API by exporting several enterprise features (in form of plugins), such as LVM2 and iSCSI. This project is a drop-in replacement for UDisks2, either from D-Bus or binary point of view. The main motivation of this change is to provide the unified D-Bus API for all the clients who are willing to manage LVM2, iSCSI, Btrfs, BCache, LSM and ZRam.
