======= the Group value is Unspecified========
virt-who is not installed by default, no group info in spec file
virt-who should be installed default, the group info should be "System Environment/Base"
I don't think virt-who should be installed by default. Most of the RHEL installations don't need virt-who and installing it by default would be waste of space. It is simple enough to install it when needed.
The Group tag in the rpm package is deprecated from Fedora 17. RHEL-7 is based on Fedora 18 so the Group tag is not needed anymore.
We agreed on the meeting that this bug should be closed (see comment #2).
