no dell_ie_rac_4 package for OMSA 7.0?

The Dell OMSA 6.5.3 yum repository contains these two packages:


However, the OMAS 7.0 yum repository contains only:


Meaning, the dell_ie_rac_4 package isn't present for OMSA 7.0.

Because of this, updating srvadmin-racadm4 from 6.5.0 to 7.0 fails,
because dell_ie_rac_4 requires that
srvadmin-racadm4-6.5.0-1.154.2.el5 provides:

$ yum update srvadmin-racadm4
--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Dependency: for package: dell_ie_rac_4
---> Package srvadmin-racadm4.x86_64 0:7.0.0-4.163.1.el5 set to be updated
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
dell_ie_rac_4-6.5.0-1.1.6.el5.x86_64 from installed has depsolving problems
  --> Missing Dependency: is needed by package dell_ie_rac_4-6.5.0-1.1.6.el5.x86_64 (installed)
Error: Missing Dependency: is needed by package dell_ie_rac_4-6.5.0-1.1.6.el5.x86_64 (installed)

What's the deal here?  If dell_ie_rac_4 is deprecated in OMSA 7.0, why
isn't it properly Obsoleted/Conflicted in srvadmin-racadm4?  E.g.:

    Obsoletes: dell_ie_rac_4 < 7.0
    Conflicts: dell_ie_rac_4 < 7.0

If it's not obsoleted, where is the package?

I looked through the OMSA 7.0 release notes, but I don't see any
mention of this...
