Description James Antill 2012-10-24 11:40:30 EDT
Description of problem:
 systemd should ship a file /etc/yum/protected.d/systemd with "systemd" in it (and/or any other package names which really shouldn't be removed). See "man yum.conf" etc.

 This is somewhat more important/useful/needed now because systemd has a much bigger set of requires than sysvinit ever did (and it's growing). So it's much more likely that someone could do "yum remove -r libmicrohttpd" or whatever.
