Everything that vdsm requires should be explicitly expressed in
vdsm.spec. vdsm-cli not being their was a bug. If there's anything else
missing, it should be added.
However, we may have softer requirement: qemu-kvm-tool is nice to have
for deep debugging, but not reallly necessary. In the future, I'd like
ovirt-host-deploy to conditionally not pull iscsi packages if the
datacenter does not require it. Thus I prefer keeping things as they
are, even though it means that ovirt-node largely duplicates the list of
packages from ovirt-host-deploy.
Just a reminder that ovirt-host-deploy is not installed on the target host,
it's just executed there through ssh after having it copied there as a
So the installation of the packages can't be done in a different manner. On
Node, you should have ovirt-host-deploy-offline installed: it should pull
in all needed deps without installing anything else "manually".
