Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 509742
[Wish] List groups at the top of the search results list.

Description of problem:
When searching for "KDE" in Gnome-Packagekit you get tons of results. However the most relevant is the group "KDE K Desktop Environment". Unfortunately gnome-packagekit lists it "in the crowd". An idea could be listing the results for the group search at the top of the list, maybe distinguishing them in a graphical manner by the rest of the results in a way that the user immediately knows that the firsts are groups of packages, and the others are single packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. search using a keyword that gives out both groups and single packages.
Results of different types are mixed up.
Results are divided by type.
My reservation is that this breaks the alphabetical ordering.
I can't really see the point of listing groups among regular packages. They're not the same thing, why should one treat them as if they are?
I'm just curious about the rationale behind this decision.
