patch to fix the problem
Description of problem:
when installing nut-client during initial system installation (e.g. with kickstart), the installation can fail because the dialout group does not yet exist.
This happens due to a missing Requires(pre) for udev for the nut-client subpackage.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
most times, depends on selected packages
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a kickstart file which installs nut-client
2. use it to install the system
installation aborts with a confusing error message about missing rights or download errors.
the install log shows that the pre-script of nut-client failed because of the missing dialin group

thanks for taking care of this issue this fast. I can confirm that it doesn't happen with your updated version anymore.
But please take a look at the %pre of the -cgi subpackage. It does the same usermod-call using the dialout group as the -client subpackage. I haven't used the -cgi, but I highly suspect that it is affected by this problem too. So I propose that you add a Requires(pre): udev to the cgi subpackage too.
