[Yum] Information about using groups

I was thinking of adding groupremove rm-grp to yum-daily.yum on all
systems and then adding packages to rm-grp as needed.  That way I don't
have to make changes to the individual files.  One possibility would be
to finally get cfengine running and push out new yum-daily.yum files as
needed, but that seems like more work than necessary.

It looks like yum-queue was something that was worked on before that
would have fulfilled this purpose.  Whatever happened to that effort?

How do you propagate the: yum groupremove 'foo' command?

However you're planning on running that command you can use the same
mechanism to run the remove command.

take a look in /etc/yum/yum-daily.yum

if you can push out a change to this file you could get the things done
you wanted to do.
