Thanks good idea, yes it wanted to remove:

 libgweather             armv7hl   3.6.0-1.fc18    @fedora/$releasever                    88 M
 evolution-data-server   armv7hl   3.6.0-1.fc18    @fedora_updates_testing/$releasever    14 M
 gnome-panel             armv7hl   3.6.0-1.fc18    @fedora/$releasever                   8.8 M

Installed size: 111 M
