Package choices imply MySQL server will be installed, but it isn't

Description of problem:
When selecting packages in anaconda, there is an option to select the
MySQL database, which says that the database server will be installed.
When the installation is complete, the mysql client packages are
installed, but the mysql-server package is not installed.
The installer is misleading, and it is difficult to get the MySQL
package from the Red Hat Network as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Shipping version with 3.0 ES edition
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Anaconda installer
2. Select MySQL packages in package selection dialog
3. Complete install
4. Attempt to use MySQL database--it isn't installed.
Actual Results: No database server is installed.
Expected Results: From the on-line information in the anaconda
screens I would expect mysql-server to be installed.
The description was explicitly changed to state "This package group
contains packages useful for use with MySQL." to explicitly not
mention the server.
