Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 477819
%packages options are odd
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:16:58 EDT
Description of problem:
--defaults is global
--optional is per-group only.
This may not be a bug, but I found it confusing.
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.
Yeah, once I understood that it's not the same thing, it made more sense.
