Description Pekka Savola 2000-08-03 16:36:37 EDT
As it is, you have to define the comps file classes _before_ you use them.

The algorithm should be expanded so that you could also define them later
in the file.

The reason: the order classes are defined in comps file defines the order
they're shown in the installer.  If the algorithm were to be reworked you
could do something like:

1 base {

1 Our Server {
 @ Development
 @ ...


0 Development {

Now, you have to define the classes you want in 'Our Server' one by one (if
you want it to be the first entry in the installer).

Not for 7.0 :)

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-05-01 12:23:53 EDT
We're going to rethink the comps file.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2002-07-17 11:53:35 EDT
We've made some changes to the comp file format that should address this issue.
Comment 4 Mike McLean 2002-08-01 11:37:09 EDT
The new comps file format does allow control of the order that package groups
