[CentOS] CentOS 7 kickstart repo directive

Is the kickstart repo directive broken under CentOS 7? Every attempt with a repo directive in the kickstart file fails during the software selection step. Removing the repo directives and the packages from those repos under %packages makes it work.

On console 2, I have verified that the (NFS) repos specified in the kickstart file are mounted and that the repo metadata has been copied over to /tmp/yum.cache. One of the packages from one of the repos that is explicitly listed under the %packages section appears in packaging.log for dependency checking.

The custom repos work fine with yum on a running machine, so there is no problem with the metadata.

Logging is poor and does not log what is actually wrong.
