Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 222760
Group View does not always work when one or more repos don't maintain comps.xml

Description of problem:
I'm not sure, but I think this problem is more easily reproduced when one repo
or more doesn't maintain a comps.xml, the Group view shows little or no
packages. Sometimes, a group will contain packages but have an empty name.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use various mixes of repos
2. Look at the Group View
Groups with no name go under 'Unknown' or 'Other', and packages are correctly
populated into each group.
This is caused by some repos (Like Livna) dont use name tags in comps xml,
because they want to use the same name an description as the comps.xml in core.
I have submit a fix to yum upstream cvs (3.1.x), it will be included in
yum-3.1.5 for FC7.
