Yep, thats actually what we have in mind, just need to discuss and
coordinate that with Will Woods and the anaconda team. Just wanted to
make sure folks know about this planed "extension" of fedup.
Thanks & regards, Phil
It appears that some work has already been done on this by wwoods in the
fedup repo. I have been helping him out a bit with the UI.
There is a prototype GUI in there that steps the user though process of

Presently the GUI allows the user to choose where to install from
(Online Repos, Optical Media or USB Media), Shows them the release
It is mostly fairly similar in concept to the old preupgrade GUI.
