RFE: systemd should use yum protected packages configuration, as removing it would be "a bad idea"
Last modified: 2012-12-20 11:05:44 EST
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.
Added into 195-4.
