- Hierarchical or tag-oriented classification ?
- Relationship between classification and spins/repositories/tasks?
- Single view of available repositories or multiple simplified
(task-oriented? spin-oriented?) views?
- Should we build those views from a single classification or can we
afford to maintain different classification efforts per spin?
- How are we going to merge classification from different repositories?
- What is the classification workflow for Fedora? For
third-party/private repositories without pkgdb access?
- Do we need the comps mandatory/default/optional tristate or
something else?
- How do we scale from a three-package private repository to a
Fedora-everything repository?
- Do we need to manipulate packages? Package groups? Something else?
- Do we need multilevel inheritance? (group A is in group B which is
in group C, etc)
- What is the right file format. XML, something else?
- How can a classification file/set of files be audited for syntax
errors (preferably in automated way)
- i18n needs?
- CLI tool needs?
- GUI tools needs?

There are lots of questions. Short term just putting everything into
comps is the way to go but for mid-term to happen it should start
