List of discontinued packages not complete
Last modified: 2011-02-09 19:20:59 EST
Description of problem:
The list of discontinued packages is not complete at this time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check the main and optional rpms of RHEL6 Beta
2. Find packages, like scribus, cyrus-imapd
3. Check http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6-Beta/html/Beta_Release_Notes/apcs04.html
Packages which have been in cluded in RHEL5 are missing as rpms but they are also not found in the list of discontinued packages.
Packages should either be in the repos or in the list of discontinued packages.
It can be important to know which packages are no longer included so customers can check in time how to get those packages in future if they rely on it. Therefore a complete list of those packages may prevent frustration on the customer side.
