a whole pile of server related packages.

whats do you want your server to serve?

I usually install servers as 'minimal', then use yum to install the 
specific packages my workloads require.   as my servers are usually 
database development servers, that often includes development tools, 
perl, postgresql (but I use the pgdg version, not the centos native 
version as its too old), and so forth.
