Description of problem:
Rebased udisks2 now covers the functionality provided by storaged from Extras and cockpit-storaged (also Extras) is going to use the new udisks2 instead.
The udisks2 'Obsoletes: storaged' which makes sure storaged is replaced by udisks2 on updates. Together with updated 'Requires:' in cockpit-storaged.
Problem is that udisks2-lvm2 and udisks2-iscsi subpackages are not required by anything from the base (just by cockpit-storaged from Extras) and thus end up in '-optional' repos.
This is a request to have udisks2-lvm2 and udisks2-iscsi subpackages moved from optional to base so that cockpit-storaged can be installed with just Extras enabled.
For the record, adding them to RHEL Extras would suffice too. We might at some
point move cockpit-storaged to base, then these two udisk2-* plugins would also
need to move. I guess this depends on how happy you are about the stability of
these two plugins.

Speaking as a udisks2 upstream person I can say we consider these two modules stable, especially regarding the API.
Ping, any progress?
we need to get all acks to make this happen.
I just added devel_ack+, and I'll try to get qa_ack+

I added the package to @remote-system-management group since cockpit in RHEL is placed in this group.
Change will be available in next compose (Beta and following nightly).
Please tell your QE to reload filelists in udisk2 advisory (if there is any update in RHEL-7.5) See https://mojo.redhat.com/docs/DOC-1126043#jive_content_id_RPMsis_missing_in_erratafilelists
The Cockpit integration tests have picked up udisks2-lvm2 and udisks2-iscsi now, and tests are looking green:

This hasn't actually been fixed at all, the packages are still in optional as they've ever been in 7.5.0 GA. As this cannot be reopened, I filed bug 1567729. Interested CCs please subscribe there.
