what happened to kernel-source in FC3?

I'm looking through the fedora core 3 RPMS, and I see no kernel-source rpm! What has happened? It was included in FC2. Has it been moved, am I crazy, or are they just crazy?

Well...basically if you open Mozilla in KDE or GNOME, the start-up page informs you(somewhere down) that they have removed the kernel source from the default installation and the ways to get it. A very bad move IMHO.

I think the idea was to save a lot of time and effort creating kernel source RPMs and storage when you can do it yourself.

# up2date --get-source kernel
# rpm -ivh /var/spool/up2date/kernel*.src.rpm

Installs in /usr/src/redhat
