It was not so much about installation, but exploration in related software.
Actually the Group index in YaST is what I use _every time_ I install a system. I'm always annoyed by wrong or inconsistent tags though but now I understand that many people do not really care. :-(
Luckily, there's at least one person that cares about trying to fix a mismatching Group: field once so spotted :)
I did so as well but not for every case. Feels like DonQuichote.
Which group(s) do you "+"-select in yast when installing a system? I just find it hard to believe anyone would literally install *all* the pieces from CPAN that found their way into openSUSE. Just considering the ACME::* subspace of Perl, not even cboltz is bold enough to have installed all of them at the same time.
I do not select whole groups. But I use the group index to find software I might be interested in. That is totally not the case for libraries or perl modules since those hopefully are pulled in by dependencies. But for applications or server daemons I use this index to select certain packages.
