They were removed as part of a general "system config tools
cleanup" (search the archives for that subject).

I don't think we should bring them back. 
     1. system-config-network kind of conflicts with
        NetworkManager(-gnome). Having two network configuration tools
        is confusing and /etc/init.d/network is not even turned on by
        default, so changes there are no visible to users. 
     2. system-config-lvm IHMO hadly serves a purpose. Most people just
        have lvm because it is the default from the installation and
        will never change anything after install.
