Description David Huff 2008-09-23 15:19:02 EDT
Description of problem:

There are some packages that are required at build time for building the appliance however are not required in the final appliance.  for example lokkit

lokkit is required to disable selinux at build time however is not needed in the finished appliance once selinux is disable.  It just takes up space.

Feature should have the following specifications:

If a package is not specified in KS as to be in the final appliance however its needed for build time the AC should pull in the package at build time and then remove it after the appliace is build, ie post section.

Posable implemtatians could be a command line option:
--include-in-build lokkit foobar

or specified in the ks: 

build requires  lokkit >= X.y

or have a separate file that specifies the build requires packages:
 %include build-deps.ks

or hardcoded in to the ac??

or added to the img min script??
