Re: How important is comps.xml to us these days? Which packages should be in comps.xml and which not?

The groups in comps.xml is used as meta-packages, there can be installed and removed. just like yum groupinstall/groupremove.

 But that's not how groupinstall/groupremove works! Groups are _very_
different from meta-packages, for instance:

yum shell <<EOL
install @x-software-development
remove libXaw-devel
run
EOL


in the pk yum backend a "meta package" the same as a yum group.

InstallPackages('x-software-development;meta;meta;meta')

will do the same as 'yum install @x-software-development"

but on other package managers it can be something else.

 But then 0.3.2 is still doing utterly broken direct SQL calls, and
failing *sigh*.

it is fixed in 0.3.3
