The software center doesn't respect dependencies when rpm are removed
Nethserver-transmission uses nethserver-samba as dependency like 'nethsever-ipsec & nethserver-openvpn'. When you use the software-center to remove nethserver-ipsec & nethserver-openvpn the dependency nethserver-samba and also nethserver-transmission which is not a dependency of vpn rpm are removed.
Of course if you use yum to remove them in a terminal, only nethserver-ipsec & nethserver-openvpn are removed because nethserver-transmission needs nethserver-samba

You will have surprises with other rpm that need removed dependencies. There is no possibilities to add a verification of installed rpm and their dependencies, of course this bug could be set as an enhancement of the software center
What about a page where the user can review all the software which will be uninstalled?

why not in a first attempt if it is easier to fix, but at the end the problem is the conception of the software center, the group install doesn't satisfy me :)
I would prefer a rpm policy ready to remove one rpm and let dependencies to other installed rpm instead to remove the rpm which need the same dependencies.
