This definitely shouldn't be happening. From a quick look at the
relevant anaconda code, we should only be changing things under the

Things should all be happening under the instroot and so it should be
relatively safe. I'm not ruling out bugs, though, hence why I think
expectations need to be set appropriately around kadischi right now :-)

either via a group or explicitly listing it in your %packages?
