The format is the same as comps.xml.  Here's a quick test file; put it
in your repository at the same level as the "headers" directory:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE comps PUBLIC "-//Red Hat, Inc.//DTD Comps info//EN" "comps.dtd">
    <description>Test group</description>
      <packagereq type="default">xfig</packagereq>

Then you can do "yum groupinstall testing-group" and it will install
xfig.  Add more <packagereq> items to put more packages in the group.
Add more <group> stanzas to create more groups.
