From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031016

Description of problem:
When installing mysql-server on a fresh RHEL WS install, the rpm (from
the extras channel) did not create the "mysql" group.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL WS (we did it via PXE from Kickstart, shouldn't matter)
2. rpm -Uhv mysql-server (from kickstart %post, again shouldn't matter)
3. cat /etc/group | grep mysql

Actual Results:  grep result is null

Expected Results:  grep should return 'mysql:x:27:' (i.e., mysql group
should be created)

Problem was detected to be site-specific. We've subsequently confirmed
the RPM works as intended.
