Known issues

* in order to take full advantage of the multi-arch feature, you’ll need:
 – updated client packages
 – recreate the stored profiles

* Bad news is that Spacewalk running on Fedora is not yet available. The
 good news is that we have started building packages to work with
 Fedora 10.🙂

* bz480233 – deleting stored profiles causes ISE

* bz479640 – do not conflict with specspo. Work around is to rpm -e specspo.

Community

*  A special thanks goes out to Colin Coe for his continued contributions
  to the apis. Also, thanks to Todd Sanders for his Telemetry contribution.
