Description:
rpm manual said,

shell> sudo yum install mysql-community-{server,client,common,libs}-*

in 

https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/linux-installation-rpm.html
https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/linux-installation-rpm.html

As comment on MySQL 5.7 document, sever-minimal is conflict server with the 
'yum install mysql-community-{server,client,common,libs}-*'.

While trying to install using on RHEL7
shell> yum install mysql-community-{server,client,common,libs}-*

I got lot of compatibility errors between minimal-server and server (see below)
Transaction check error:
file /etc/my.cnf conflicts between attempted installs of mysql-community-server-minimal-5.7.11-1.el7.x86_64 and mysql-community-server-5.7.11-1.el7.x86_64
file /usr/bin/my_print_defaults conflicts between attempted installs of mysql-community-server-minimal-5.7.11-1.el7.x86_64 and mysql-community-server-5.7.11-1.el7.x86_64

How to repeat:
See Description

Suggested fix:
Change/modify the 'yum install mysql-community-{server,client,common,libs}-*' command sample to avoid -minimal- rpm.

Thank you for the bug report, the example was updated and now reads as:

yum install mysql-community-{server,client,common,libs}-* --exclude='*minimal*'

Also, turns out server-minimal was added in the EL7 builds as it's not present in the EL6 builds.
