So, I've been curious - is there a new "more better" way to do this  
in yum 2.6?  I get the impression that the comps format (ie.  
yumgroups.xml) is going the way of the dodo bird.  Seth has brought  
up alternatives for how mock should handle this, but I'm unaware of  
how "groups" are/will be handled in yum 2.6+.  Is this still under  
development?  Is it an underground movement to do away with the  
segregation of packages? :)  If it has already been decided, is there  
a place I can read about groups support in current versions of yum?

Thanks in advance.
