I just read:
http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS6.0#head-c667a3d0dc5a41afffb5de4f72ecb6e15c929922
And I wonder why has been:
    rhnlib
    rhn-check
    rhn-client-tools
    rhnsd
    rhn-setup
    rhn-setup-gnome
    yum-rhn-plugin
removed from CentOS 6?

We discussed it more than year ago:
http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-devel/2010-January/005307.html
http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-devel/2010-February/005402.html
and the conclusion was that we will leave CentOS 5 as is (i.e. do not
add there this packages) but in CentOS 6 this packages will not be removed.
So I'm quite surprised that they are removed?
Can somebody share with me the details why it has been removed?
