Description Sean Myers 2015-08-14 12:51:09 EDT
Description of problem:
For the purposes of automated testing and general usefulness when installing into a virtual environment, I would like the open-vm-tools package to be installed. It provides information to VMware hypervisors that simplify management. This package should be available at the fusor-installer stage and thereafter.

Here's the yum info:
Name        : open-vm-tools
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 9.4.0
Release     : 6.el7
Size        : 430 k
Repo        : rhel-7-server-rpms/7Server/x86_64
Summary     : Open Virtual Machine Tools for virtual machines hosted on VMware
URL         : http://open-vm-tools.sourceforge.net/
License     : GPLv2
Description : The open-vm-tools project is an open source implementation of VMware Tools. It
            : is a suite of open source virtualization utilities and drivers to improve the
            : functionality, user experience and administration of VMware virtual machines.
            : This package contains only the core user-space programs and libraries of
            : open-vm-tools.

Note that the URL is incorrect if you'd like to take a closer look, it's https://github.com/vmware/open-vm-tools now.
