Sorry, I missed the 2nd half of this thread where my question above is answered:

yum remove @group won't remove any real packages or group members, just the metapackage.

This is true

You'll also lose the ability to track this @group when new group-members appear in the repo(s).

If you remove the metapackage then yes, you can't track what you don't
have. If you have the metapackage installed then when new group members
appear you'll get them added to your system.

Just a thought: if we do not eliminate groupinstall/groupremove behaviour, then yum could potentially yum groupremove foo and remove all package foo "brought in", expect if they are a dependency for another @metapkg.

Removing the @metapkg will enable you to install @metapkg and all leafs once, yum remove @metapkg without removing the leafs would be possible, as well as including the leafs in the removal: yum groupremove @metapkg.

Does this make sense?
