RFE: add rpmdb-redhat to installer package selection
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:39:04 EDT
Description of problem:
While the rpmdb-redhat package is very large, having it installed is very useful
for non-everything installs when you go to install a package which needs
something else and I generally install it. While redhat-config-packages may be
able to resolve dependencies without rpmdb-redhat, if you have a package which
is not on the distribution but needs a package from the distribution, having
rpmdb-redhat (someday rpmdb-fedora I assume) makes things easier.
Yes, I could install this post install but it would be easier if it is available
for selection (but not installed by default).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This selection is determined by the comps package.
Ideally, the methods used by rpmdb-redhat and redhat-config-packages are merged,
and one of comps.rpm and rpmdb-redhat goes away.
As rpmdb appears to be being slowly phased out in favor of RPM metadata, I doubt
this will change.
