Description Jan Hutař 2014-06-04 07:45:02 UTC
Description of problem:
After upgrade from 5.5.0 to 5.6.0 few packages are left orphaned (i.e. they were installed as part of Satellite 5.5.0, but are not present (or their updates) in 5.6.0 channels). This shows these packages are:

1. not required in 5.6.0 installation
2. we lost track about them so potential security fix do not get into
   5.6.0 installation

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade Satellite 5.5.0 to 5.6.0
2. Make sure you have 5.6.0 channel and not 5.5.0
3. You should not have extra packages (packages not in any subscribed channel)

Actual results:
# yum list extras
