Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 81763
registration by activation key subscribes to unspecified powertools channels.

* 7.0, 7.1
my 7. boxes are getting subscribed to the powertools subchannel (when
registered via activation key) even though the activation key has that channel
- your registration token does not specify a base channel, because the editor
did not allow you to select one
- if no channel is present in the registration key, it computes the channels to
subscribe based on the rhnDistChannelMap rules
- all 7. boxes are automatically subscribed to the powertools channels,
based on the above-mentioned rules.
Closing. To quote gdk:
So the answer is "works as designed," although it's debatable whether it was
designed very well. :-)
Really, not much I can do.
