Here's the FPC ticket about it:
Thanks I was able to find the reason:
RPM in Fedora 18 does not require the presence of the Group tag in the
spec file. If the tag is defined, it will be ignored. The package
groups of the yum application are used on a Fedora 18 system as the
relevant source of information on which group is the package a part
I remembered in one thread of devel mailing list on create hawaii group
and bingo found the link:
So now, how I know the group of the package (via yum or dnf) ? seems to
me many packages will not have group ... and 3rd-part software ?
Also /usr/bin/gnome-software how find the group of the package ?
Well this is not a very important matter , but I'd like try organize
packages in groups , via repoview.
