It might be useful to have a storage list for Fedora, but I'm on the
fence.

I'm on fedora-devel, fedora-kernel, and the anaconda lists already.

I'm in #fedora-devel, #fedora-kernel, and #anaconda on IRC too.

It's not clear to me that the root cause for low communication on this
change was "too few lists."  

Now that I've actively searched for it, I do find, deep in a thread
about "partitioning expectations for F18," a tester who was surprised
by the change back in August.  The surprise makes me think it probably
wasn't well communicated to anyone, originally.  For example, not
communicated to the fedora test lists, even though they existed.
(I'm not on _that_ list, so if I'm wrong, please forgive me).

I also found your "Does this mean we can ( finally ) disable lvm and
related services by default" comment in that thread, which gives me a
little better context for your passion on this topic.  ;)
