Description of problem:
I would like to see an option of installing packages required in new
default/base installation.

Example: When you upgrade to the recent yum, a new package
fedora-rawhide-something.rpm has to be installed in order to get the
yum.repos.d directory.

From Core X to Core Y release, some packages are being added to the
package sets as required, because they introduce vital new functionality.

I would like to have these packages when upgrading. Either via an
extra option or via normal depencencies, e.g.
fedora-rawhide-something.rpm should be required by newer yums.

This makes updating much easier.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

why not use groupupdate "Base" "Core"

that should give you new packages in either.

Hm, do these groups exist?

yum grouplist hidden

they're hidden groups

Comment 4 Florian Effenberger 2004-11-17 18:15:14 UTC
Thanks, that sounds good, although it isn't documented. :)

Comment 5 Seth Vidal 2004-11-30 06:08:49 UTC
You're right, it's not. If you have the time and would like to write
up a patch to the manpages I'd appreciate it.

Comment 6 Seth Vidal 2004-11-30 06:12:56 UTC
I'm going to close this as notabug b/c it technically isn't. Just
poorly documented.
