But for stuff outside of the core distro - it would be useful to have
them in comps.xml files on the other repositories so you could have
those type of groups for the non-core packages too.

So if core has:

xmms
noatun

in a multimedia group

then extras might have:
xine (no illegal bindings)
xmms-alsa
totem


As it is r-c-p would need a comps.xml on the other repository for the
package to be in a listed group.

when I wrote the comps.xml handling for yum I wrote a class that will
take one or more comps.xml files and merge the groups b/t them.

So if repo1 had a comps with a group named 'sound and video' that
included xmms and noatun and repo2 had a group named 'sound and video'
that included xmms-alsa, totem and xine, then when you view the contents
of the group from w/i yum you ended up with a group named 'sound and
video'  that included: xine, xmms, xmms-alsa, totel and noatun.

I think what havoc was meaning that programs that are going to be
exposed to the user in the extras/alternatives/etc repositories should
be listed in a comps.xml file and ideally then r-c-p could handle that
part and list them nicely in those groups for the user.
