Description of problem: 
yum-2.0.4-3 does not depend on rpm-python and libxml2-python. That

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. rpm -e rpm-python 
2. rpm -e libxml2-python 
3. rpm -i yum-2.0.4-3.i386.rpm 
4. yum check-update 
This will fail complaining that module "rpm" or module "libxml2" is 
Actual results: 
yum-2.0.4-3 has missing dependencies. 
Expected results: 
yum-2.0.4-3 should depend on both rpm-python and libxml2-python.

Dependencies on rpm are knd of pointless.

libxml2-python might be useful, punted upstream.

Would red hat stop changing my specfile? :)

from the yum 2.0.X specfile in cvs:
Requires: python, rpm-python, rpm >= 0:4.1.1, libxml2-python

so who made the change?
