Christoph pointed to these on irc a short while back :
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=714035 and
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=645796 - I think they are
both relevant here.

Since the early days of CentOS-6, we've spoken about getting another
install type called the Lightweight Server media going - perhaps its
time to kick that effort back in a bit, and get these packages added in
( but it would still be quite nice to get a real user story, or stories
together as to the real problems we hope to fix with that ).
