Hi Farkas,

Thanks for the report. But I'd like to request you to not CC both the 
lists, its a waste of time. And this sort of stuff is much better off in 
the bugs.c.o instance.

Easy to handle, I'll get that sorted. Ofcourse this wont change on the 
install media, just the mirrors.

I know how this got missed :/ Will write a test to make sure that no 
package is released if its already in the tree. Should be fairly trivial.

same as above.

This is a good point. We had quite a lot of issues getting anaconda to 
build and the final builds were actually done by hand. Both the 
src.rpm's are in the srpms repo. I do try and keep the two in sync most

Ned highlighted these issues at the QA stages, but we all felt that 
since the packages were already released into an older public repo, we 
would leave them as is and the next update for these packages should 
move the tag to the right place. or wherever it needs to be.

I havent dont any matches against your list here, but  do know that 
there are a lot of updates in the queue behind the src.rpms. There are 5 
updates not pushed through as yet:


Depending on how far we get with the srpms today, we can push these out 
as well. They are all built ( including the plus kernel, which still 
needs to be tested ), just awaiting b/w for release.
