Default desktop Digest, Vol 77, Issue 16

what do you mean by 'that wouldn't be good in some cases'.

Try for example to remove the hunspell package (without doing it) to see what will happen with the OS.
System -> Administration -> Add/Remove Software
Write in the checkbox: hinspell
Uncheck the English hunspell package and proceed to see how many packages are prepared to be removed from the system ... and don't forget to press 'cancel' of the operation for it will become 'interesting'.

For example if another spin based off the livecd desktop spin actually uses
perl, then removing perl in post would have bad effects.

Though it seems the yum command was failing on the nightly compose builder,
so that command wasn't having any significant effect on those builds in
any case. But perhaps building in a different environment might have caused
it to actually remove packages during the post install phase and that wouldn't
be good in some cases.
