Last modified: 2013-07-03 22:55:43 EDT

Steps to Reproduce:
Are you sure all past versions all since rhel-5.5, vdsm22, do not need this?
Please remember that vdsm-bootstrap is expected to bootstrap all versions of vdsm since first released.
I will rephrase comment#1... from vdsm-bootstrap master of 3.2 we use yum API to install packages, hence not using the explicit dependencies at all.
ovirt-host-deploy also uses yum API to achieve the task.
So this already resolved in 3.2, the question in comment#1 is for 3.1.z.

This is exactly the problem - we explicitly ask for SDL. I'm pretty sure we don't need it anymore.

No, not important at all for 3.1.z.
