'post' is a section of a kickstart file - the type of file used for

operation in the 'post' section of the Fedora live kickstart should be
removed, he was not suggesting any change to the yum utility itself.
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.
