What are the additional dependencies compared to Udisks2?
Would gnome-disk-utility, gvfs, etc. work as well as they used to
without regressions when
dropping in storaged, either on a running system, or when compiling
Will bug fixes and enhancements to the common part between storaged
udisks2 be backported to udisks2?
I'm fairly certain we don't want iSCSI binaries in the Workstation
(we've been trying to get rid of the ones that Anaconda brings in
I also don't see why ZRam is something 1) you'd want to have to
Well, its a compressed bloc device residing in RAM - I can see various
use cases, not just the most frequent one (zram used as a swap device).
Some people for example use tmpfs for running builds, I guess zram
could be used for similar purposes, possibly enabling bigger builds
that take a bit longer than on tmpfs.
2) that has its place in a storage API.
Why is an API providing
some additional functionality you are not going
to use in your specific usecase a problem ?
I'm sure glibc and kernel provide many API calls not directly used by
the default apps on the workstation and we are still using them...
