If you click the "View Issues" menu item you can search.  At the top of
the screen are filters that you can set (and save) for your logged in

Not sure if that is a bug, as centos-release provides redhat-release and
it will work either way.

In fact, having it work with redhat-release facilitates installing
centos-release on redhat (or other clones who also provide
redhat-release) machines to allow for upgrade.much easier ... so this is
not so much a bug as a feature.

That is an upstream problem, though anaconda is a heavily modified
package, so it might be possible.  (Though, every mod we make takes us
farther from the known and tested codebase.  This means we stand a
chance of introducing our own bugs ... something we do not want to do).
