How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. # yum repolist
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security 

repo id                                         repo name                      
rhel-x86_64-server-5                            Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5
for 64-bit x86_64)                            enabled: 8,362
repolist: 8,362
2. # yum clean all
3. # pirut    
4. Select package and Click "Optional packages".
5. EX Select "Base System" and "Base".
6. Click  "Optional packages"
Actual results:
It's generally sorted right but see that "network-manager" is first. There is some exception like this if you search in other groups too.

Expected results:
all packages are sorting alphabetically

 I thought we had this already, but I was thinking of bug#481179, which is about the group info. sorting.

 Anyway, this bug is really a yum bug ... but I'm not sure how painful it would be to change the sorting in yum (although for RHEL we don't do i18n for yum itself, so maybe it's ok).
 Fixing it in just pirut would mean putting custom sorting routines everywhere.
Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-08-09 15:15:21 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 4 James Antill 2013-03-14 16:12:11 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Engineering for inclusion in a Red 
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.

Red Hat does not currently plan to provide this change in a Red Hat 
Enterprise Linux update release for currently deployed products.

With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in 
response to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a 
conservative approach when evaluating enhancements for inclusion in 
maintenance updates for currently deployed products. The primary 
objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware platform 
support and to resolve critical defects.
