Comment 1 John Jarvis 2010-12-07 13:59:16 UTC
IBM is signed up to test and provide feedback, setting OtherQA.

Comment 5 John Jarvis 2011-01-13 17:03:43 UTC
Setting this feature as CLOSED WONTFIX as backporting is not
possible as the RHEL-5 and RHEL-6 anaconda store code share nothing in common.  This is denied for RHEL 5.x
