Re: Default MTA for Fedora 7

No, this is not the real reason. "exim" is even preferred when both "Core" and "Extras" repositories are enabled while a program requiring "/usr/sin/sendmail" is scheduled for install. For instance, this can happen after a minimum install. In ordinary cases [e.g. desktop install], "sendmail" gets picked up during system install since it is listed in "comps.xml".
Still - Only Exim is available on the DVD.
If something else is our *default* MTA, it would probably be a good idea to include that one on the DVD instead, wouldn't you agree. We can argue about what yum picks up as preferred for whatever reason, but when only one included package (Exim) provides /usr/sbin/sendmail, that whole discussion is pointless. If sendmail og postfix was on the DVD as well, that would be another case, but they're not.
