Now I've read the whole message
and I see that it's mainly pirut's problem. Right?
Correct, this would be a problem with the pirut component, which we pull in for
packaging selection. It's possible I'm not setting something up right in
s-c-kickstart, but I think we get this same message in anaconda so I'm leaning
towards an internal pirut problem.
OK, thanks, I reported it piruts's maintainer.
I guess we can wait come time for his opinion:
