Description Alexandre Oliva 2008-05-05 00:15:46 EDT
Description of problem:
A kickstart install with the following %packages selection installs
emacs-common, but no other emacs package.  I found this odd and thought I'd
report it.

# languages
# base-system
#@ virtualization
# desktops
# apps
# servers
# development

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Additional info:
emacs-common didn't get installed with 9-Preview.

Personally, I'd prefer if emacs was installed and usable, but that's just me :-)

emacs is listed as an optional package in the Editors group.  One good reason is
that there are plenty of emacs options and picking the right one by default is
um... interesting.  You'll have to pick one and list it in your kickstart
config.  More interesting is that emacs-common got pulled in, I'm curious what
package in your selection actually brought that in as it's not listed in comps
at all.  Will have to do some research on that, however this bug is not a bug.

ruby-mode is default in the ruby group, and requires emacs-common. Just FYI.
