Is it not allowed to change one's mind? As part of that

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.
What was done behind the scenes merely involved touching yast and
zypper AFAICS (the other part was then in front of the curtain).
It's not like yast is or could be the only catalog browser in the
world, so I put that off with a shrug, since the metadata was still
there and could be used by any other category browser (it's not like
yast is holding a monopoly), so become a new category browser as a
proof. As users started to notice yast suddenly lacked a feature, the
raison d'etre of the proof kind of came to be. This might give an
insight as to why the harder objections came in rather later: because
I did not value yast as much as the metadata.
