Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A

Details

An updated pykickstart package that fixes one bug and adds one enhancement is
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The pykickstart package is a python library used to manipulate kickstart files.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, only the first group listed for removal was processed,
and only if it was the last line in the %packages section when the group removal
syntax was added. With this update, a list of all excluded groups is preserved.
Now, all marked package groups are removed, not only the last group. (BZ#577334)

This update also adds the following enhancement:

* By default, anaconda opens a hole in the firewall to allow for Secure Shell
(SSH). With this update, the option --no-ssh to the firewall command allows the
user to disable this kickstart setting. (BZ#681944)

All pykickstart users are advised upgrade to this updated package, which fix
this bug and adds this enhancement.
