Description Gérard Milmeister 2006-03-23 12:16:55 EST
Not all of the groups from /usr/share/doc/rpm-4.4.2/GROUPS
are considered by Pirut.
For example I cannot find the packages in Development/Languages
anywhere. I can see only Development/Tools.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-03-23 13:04:09 EST
The groups shown by pirut aren't the RPM groups, it's the groups from the comps file
Comment 2 Gérard Milmeister 2006-03-23 14:11:22 EST
Does this mean the groups only have packages from Core?
However I see graveman from Extras in Applications/Sound and Video.
But where is pl from Extras (RPM group Development/Languages).
This is quite inconsistent IMHO. Of course there is the list
view, but grouping is easier to browse.
Since I find pirut quite simple and useful otherwise, it would be
nice if grouping applied to all packages.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-03-23 14:24:45 EST
There's a comps file per repository.  Extras has a comps file, but it gets
updated by maintainers (note: I need to push the updated file from CVS into the
repos "soon")

And realistically, grouping for all packages isn't what you want.  You want
grouping for _interesting_ packages.  Things like libfoobar aren't generally
useful on their own, but are useful when being used by some application.
Comment 4 Gérard Milmeister 2006-03-23 16:31:10 EST
Well, I understand. Who decides what goes in and what not?
I, as the maintainer of pl (swi-prolog), think that this
is interesting enough to get into Development Tools (like clisp).
