Make it so everyone else can say:

And it will work for desktops too, given a few experts that publish their lists of packages for for given purposes and preferences.

look at yum-groups-manager

you can easily make a local, custom comps.xml right now with a list of groups.

then you can do:

createrepo -g that_comps.xml somedir

and you have a repository that ONLY has comps.xml in it that is then instantly usable by any site which can get to the baseurl where it lives.

neat, huh?

That might work locally, but I don't see it happening for arbitrary sharing between people who have installed a system suitable for some purpose and those who would like to duplicate it where they have no other relationship.
