Description Seth Vidal 2001-05-30 10:39:37 EDT
kickstart needs to have the ability to negatively select packages or
package groups.

so something like:
@ Workstation Common
-@ Emacs

or something like:

@ Web Server
- tux

that would mean fewer pkg cleanups in %post

katzj was looking at this.

Done for packages in CVS.  Not going to happen for groups because the chances of
causing major problems by excluding a group is much greater.
