SL Changes from SL 6.0 (in addition to TUV changes.)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
* redhat-logos
- Shawn Thompson created a whole new graphical theme for SL 6 called
"Edge Of Space".

* sl-release
- We pulled the fastbugs and testing repo's out of the repository file
that comes with sl-release. They are now in their own rpm called
yum-conf-sl-other.
- This is done to fix the problem of people checking the fastbugs during
the install, fastbugs is then not on by default, and updates break.
* yum-conf-sl-other
This contains the sl-fastbugs, sl-testing, and sl-debuginfo yum
repositories.
