Description of problem:

--defaults is global
--optional is per-group only.

This may not be a bug, but I found it confusing.
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2009-01-20 10:57:32 EST
Would you also like a global --optional and a per-group --default option?

The thing that might be a bit confusing here is that %packages --default is the same as clicking Next on the package selection screen, while just listing the group gets you its default package set.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2009-01-20 12:54:06 EST
Yeah, once I understood that it's not the same thing, it made more sense.
