Where is this package so that I can actually try to see what's going on?

Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2007-05-02 21:46:47 EDT
The hts package obsoletes itself with no version specified.  Fix the broken package.
Comment 14 James Antill 2007-06-25 15:57:24 EDT
 Given that we want to fix this buy using yum-3.2.1 (I have a patch pending for
upstream), and yum-3.2.x breaks the rhn-plugin, I'm going to put a depends on
the fix for the rhn-plugin.

 This obviously fails now, as we dropped the yum errata. Moving to 5.2.
