I suspect you missed the post that would fit about here [1.1] in the
timeline where you agreed that groups should be removed and hence others
probably thinking they had a consensus and starting to do the work in
yast etc which was completed some 12 months back
Is it not allowed to change one's mind? As part of that
thread, there came a time when I realized, hey, groups not so bad
after all if you actually spend time on the matter.
"I would totally want to retain RPM groups [for games]".
The natural question then is, why stop at games.
" Maybe this insight helps in finding where to go :)" isn't really a
strong indication if others were happy with the removal I can clearly
see who they thought they had a general consensus and thefore started
the removal work, it was another year before you gave a strong
indication that you wanted to keep them and by that time much of the
work behind the scenes was done.
