Description of problem:
When attempting to have the anaconda Software Selection spoke display an "Add-on" for an environment selected by default (checked in the GUI), we ran into an issue where dnf/libcomps doesn't appear to return the right value for such a group.
anaconda is using the base dnf class to see if groups are set to default. In a test compose, we have the headless-management group defined as:
<description> Tools for managing the system without an attached graphical console.
The group is also listed in the <optionlist> section of the environment. When looking at the GUI, the headless management add-on is not selected, even though it should be.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start an installation via anaconda, point it at a repo that has an addon with <default>true</default> defined
2. Go to the Software Spoke
add-on not selected by default
add-on selected by default
I've copied Martin Kolman from the anaconda team, who can help with how the anaconda code flow works as needed.
I also tried specifying <default>True</default> in case it was a case-sensitive issue, but it appears the compose tooling changed it back to "true" in the output comps.xml file.
