Is there a change proposal filed for this? It's definitely the kind of
thing which warrants it, for communication with the web and
infrastructure teams, and for marketing.
The USB creator, presumably, is a small download, which then itself
does download of the ISO? I assume it's packaged as an installer for
Windows and OS X -- what about for Linux? (Either for existing Fedora
users or distro-hoppers?)
I think he's talking about liveusb-creator, in which case yes, this is
more or less what it is. I would be leery about making luc the 'main'
download for Workstation given its current abilities and the resources
currently devoted to it, though. In my experience it's the least
reliable of the 'official' USB writing mechanisms, after dd-style
writes (most reliable) and livecd-iso-to-disk. I'm also not sure if we
have a packaging of luc for non-Fedora distros or OS X.
