Description of problem:
Any changes made in the group tab in the Anaconda software selection spoke are wiped out if the user switches to another environment. If the user switches back, all groups are again unselected. Also any ticked groups common with the environment the user has switched to are unticked.
This seems to be a serious usability issue - there can be quite a lot of groups that can be selected and we are basically throwing out the users work.
Also once bug 1087831 is fixed the current behavior could result in wiping out group selection from kickstart.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. on the "Installation summary" hub enter the "Software selection" spoke
2. select a few groups in an environment
3. switch to another environment and back to the original one
Any group selection is wiped out when switching environments.
When switching environments the changes made by user should not be silently dropped. Also any common selected groups should remain selected ("ticked") when switching environments.
I actually have a patch fixing this ready to use that was too late for 7.0.

Switching back and forth between environments doesn't change selection of groups.
