Description Mike Burns 2012-06-02 11:49:50 EDT
Description of problem:
Assuming livecd-tools package gets shipped (bug 809085), we have no reason to ship rhev-hypervisor-tools anymore.  We should drop the package

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Andrew Cathrow 2012-06-02 19:42:22 EDT
But where would we ship helper tools like dup injection utility, etc?
Comment 2 Mike Burns 2012-06-03 07:25:30 EDT
Those are going in ovirt-node-tools.  rhev-hypervisor-tools was always for *only* the re-packaged livecd-iso-to-* scripts.
Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 04:21:39 EDT
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 21:50:38 EDT
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
Comment 6 Mike Burns 2012-10-04 09:26:24 EDT
*** Bug 842454 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 8 Mike Burns 2012-11-02 08:56:49 EDT
Old packages should remain on RHN.  We should just prevent any new versions from being posted.  

Verification should be in the errata -- there should be no rhev-hypervisor-tools package in the ovirt-node errata
