Thank you!  I haven't had time to look at that yet but have been
hoping that we could generate even more of this stuff from the other
parts of the repo.  As for the volume of dependencies, it's been a
while since I did something like that with RHEL, but it has always had
copious amounts of dependencies even for "small" installations.  (Does
DBus still require X on a server?  I don't think so, but it once

The attachment was bounced by Intel's MTA because of the .sh
attachment so @intel.com addresses missed this.  I'd go ahead and
propose a WIP review[0] to stx-tools and iterate on it there.


[0] In case not everyone knows the common practices in Gerrit, WIP
reviews usually begin the commit message with 'WIP' or the
author/committer can set a Workflow -1 in the Reply dialog.  Or both.
Often this means it is not ready for detailed review or it could be a
way to solicit feedback during development, it is convenient to
mention the reason for WIP in the commit message.
