Bug 1297561 - [RFE] Enhance the installer to check for subscription to specific repositories

Bz1103884 would cover "checking" the right repos are enabled.

But I'm not sure how we could select in advance. If you are at the point where you have the satellite-installer package installed, then I'm pretty sure you have the right repos enabled - the satellite & satellite-installer package has dependencies on basically everything in the product.

Please reopen if that's incorrect, or have an idea about how we could do the selection with satellite-installer, but I don't think we can fix it in our software.

This seems more to me like an issue across the red hat portfolio of products that could be fixed somewhere like subscription-manager, where one could easily say 
"subscription-manager --enable-product=satellite6" or "subscription-manager --enable-product=rhev" and have it do the right thing.
