Puplet only does a "yum check-install" (AFAIK since this is
time Ive even heard of this app). There is absolutely nothing it
does to check if new packages have been added to a group. If a
non-optional package is added to a group that no other package depends
on, how is the user to know he needs to install this package?
In addition a user may want to have all packages for a group. For
example I should be able to select that I want all optional games
packages and every time a new game is added to comps, it should be
installed on my system automatically. puplet does not do this AFAIK.
*shrug* I'm not sure users want to constantly get more and more packages added
to their install, vs just the existing packages updated. Typically
RHL/Fedora releases wouldn't change comps for the duration of the release,
but with Extras and new packages being added all the time, comps can get
updated. Blindly adding new packages to a user's install isn't the way,
perhaps if the user launches pirut it can notice that new packages have been
added to the pool and do a interesting popup or a window that says "new
packages added to the pool:
foo in group Bar
baz in group Zing
and let the USER decide if they want to add those packages or not.
