autofs not installed by default

Hi all,

The past few Fedora installs, I've specified a NIS server during the
Anaconda installation so I don't have to create any local user accounts.
 However, once installation is complete, I can't log into any NIS accounts
because autofs insn't installed, causing the user accounts' home folders to
not be mounted.  I have to sign in as root, install autofs, then all is

My question is: shouldn't autofs be installed by default, as part of the
base installation?
