Description Simon Matter 2010-04-26 03:04:56 EDT
Description of problem:
The list of discontinued packages is not complete at this time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL6 Beta

How reproducible:

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
Actual results:
Packages which have been in cluded in RHEL5 are missing as rpms but they are also not found in the list of discontinued packages.

Expected results:
Packages should either be in the repos or in the list of discontinued packages.

Additional info:
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.
