Description of problem:
I had F9 installed with an additionally installed nautilus-open-terminal. But after an upgrade to F10, open-nautilus-terminal was lost so I had to reinstall it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Anaconda of the F10 DVD
Did not try
Steps to Reproduce:
No more nautilus-open-terminal package
still existing nautilus-open-terminal
Please attach /var/log/anaconda.log and /var/log/anaconda.syslog to this bug report so we can see what might have caused the problem. Thanks.

Matthias - did anything change with the packaging of nautilus-open-terminal from F9 to F10 that might have caused it to get removed? Or, did some other package Obsolete it?
No, and not that I know of.

The nautilus-open-terminal package is not included on the DVD -- is that relevant?
I think, yes. I saw a lot of people complaining about a lost "open terminal" menu entry on their desktop.
Me too ;-)
The only solution I see for this problem in a DVD-based upgrade is including nautilus-open-terminal on the DVD, but you could say the same thing about any random package a user might have installed.
I think the better solution is avoiding DVD-based upgrades and using preupgrade or a yum upgrade. Obviously it's too late to do this for F12, but maybe the F13 anaconda should give the user some sort of feedback letting him know that packages were found for which no upgrades are available on the DVD media. (1) Is that possible? (2) If so, is there any chance that the upgrade path might make it impossible for the user to bail out and use preupgrade?
Well, the package being on the DVD really shouldn't matter. anaconda doesn't just remove packages on upgrade that it can't find an upgrade candidate for. It only removes a package if that package is obsoleted by something. Otherwise, it would also remove packages you've built locally and don't have in a repo anaconda knows anything about during installs.
If this still presents itself with F12, please attach /tmp/yum.log to this bug report before you reboot when anaconda finishes and we should be able to debug it from that information.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
