Connie was out sick, and I had e-mail trouble, sorry for the delay.
To me this looks very nice. It is a little different than we expected, we
sortof just expect the rpm's to be listed, but I like the way you list the
groups, then rpm's.
It does get a little messy when you have groups with 'mandatory groups'
'default groups' and 'optional metagkgs', and then Mandatory Packages' and
While I, as a group maintainer like that, I think your average sys-admin is
just wondering what groups and packages are going to be installed if they
install that group.
Here's an example of a messy group
Dialup Networking Support
X Window System
Sound and Video
Fermi Desktop Large Onsite
GNOME Desktop Environment
Is there any way we could just say 'groups' and 'packages', I think that would
make things more clear, but that is just my opinion.
I'll let Connie say what she thinks, she should be in today.
