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

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.

Don't forget to add 'RHTSdone' to the QA Whiteboard along with a comment describing where the RHTS test can be found once the RHTS test has been written. Otherwise, if an RHTS will not be created, please remove RHTS from the qa whiteboard.
