 Replying to [comment:4 clumens]:
 > > I'm still unclear on the difference in expected results for the ''Skip
 bootloader'' and the ''update bootloader'' test case.  When a new kernel
 package is installed during the upgrade, it will run grubby (see the
 %script of the kernel rpm) and modify grub.conf.  When we choose ''Skip
 bootloader'', does that mean that anaconda '''will not''' write a new
 bootloader configuration and '''will not''' run grub-install, but
 '''will''' update the existing grub.conf when the new kernel is installed?

 %post scriptlet will still get run.  So you can't help but get grub-
 install run and grub.conf changed.

 you to setup how the bootloader should be configured, anaconda won't write
 out a bootloader configuration for you, and it will not run whatever
 program installs the bootloader for your platform.

 Thanks clumens, Then is there any way to test the difference between
 “update” and "skip" bootloader? The existing
 update bootloader] test has the same results no matter one chooses update
 or skip bootloader.
