[Linux-cluster] Broken package management

RHEL software subscriptions to RHN and its channels are excellent tools.  However, there appears to be no package compatibility tests/dependencies between channels, i.e., RHEL 4 AS updates recently supply kernel and many lvm2 bug fixes, but breaks their own layered software in Cluster Suite and GFS!

I can forgive the kernel, because it is generally skipped until all other 3rd party software (even if their all Red Hat partners: EMC, Emulex, InterSystems, Oracle) is checked/certified against the update.  But I checked out the updated lvm2, and it consequently breaks lvm2-cluster-2.02.06-7.0.RHEL4.

Can the oversight management of GFS/CS packages be explained please?
