[Yum] groupreq and yum 2.6

Are grouplists (groupreq) in the yumgroups.xml file still supported in
yum 2.6?  Maybe moved somewhere else?  I've searched the web, but only
found a post about the group behavior changing and no real details. 

We are migrating to FC5 from FC3, so from yum 2.2 to 2.6, and yum only
seems to install packagelist packages, but ignores the grouplist.  This
feature was nice for kickstarting machines based on the machine's role
(yum groupinstall workstation).

Any information would be great.
