I believe the only thing that really uses those groups anymore is
Synaptic uses (rpm) groups to organize the package tree view - typos in rpm
groups show up really nicely there :) Things like
They have almost no meaning and there isn't enough depth or breadth to
let them be a good classifier, imo.
Yup, many packages don't have a real match in the "official" rpm group list
all and others could be put into one of several groups, typically things like
python modules: is this System Environment/Libraries, Development/Libraries or
Development/Languages .. when it fits to all of those.
