Installing "Identity Management Server" failing dependencies

Screenshot failed installation
Description of problem:
Installing "Identiy Management Server" from the RHEL 6.4 (x86_64) beta DVD will complain about samba4-common and samba4-winbind.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 6.4 beta
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start RHEL 6 installation from DVD
2. Select "Identity Management Server" to install
3. When resolving dependencies, it will complain
Can't continue installing unless "Identity Management Server" is deselected
RHEL 6.4 with IPA installed
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.
This answere surprises me: "if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux"
This just cannot be a feature request; it is a "normal bug" in the installion DVD. OK, it is a beta release and therefor this bug report. There is a dependency problem since the de (group package) installation of "Identity Server Manager" is expecting some Samba4 packages which of course are not there.
Please take a brief look at the attachment.

Sorry, this is a bug bot reply. It kicked in because of the holidays and no one was around to look at the bug. I will see what can be done.
We had a discussion with Sumit Bose and we agreed on the following proposed solution:
As ipa-server-trust-ad is not required for basic IPA server function (only when AD trusts are being configured), move it to list of Optional Packages in Identity Management Server to avoid this kind of conflicts
Conflicting group configuration:
Group: Identity Management Server
Description: Centralized management of users, servers and authentication policies.
ipa-server-trust-ad <- requires samba4 packages
Group: CIFS file server
Description: Share files between Linux and Microsoft Windows systems.
The Bugzilla will be cloned for releng and current Bugzilla will only be used to file a release note.
Closing as duplicate to 891874 as the samba4-* requirement and related conflict has been described in Doc Text for Bug 766179 (ipa AD Trust feature RFE).
