For those of you who are familiar with the innerworkings of comps -
there are two identifiers users can use to get to a group: groupid and
group name

the groupid is a single word
the group name can be multiple words

when multiple comps files are available yum merges them keying to the

the problem is when a user requests the groupinfo by the group name and
not groupid yum returns the group it matches first by the group name,
not all groups matching that name.

I can change this so it works for all groups I just wanted a survey to
see how folks felt about it.


I only speak for me.
