Jan, I went through the installed packages on my system here and looked casually at the list of packages and their assigned groups.
It led me to the following questions:
what is discord doing in "Amusements/Games/Other"? why is xscreensaver in "Amusements/Toys"? Why is GNOME Builder not in "Development/Tools/IDE" but it's plugins are? Why is Archiving/Backup considered a subcategory of Productivity? Why is does Clustering have to do with Productivity? Why are gstreamer codecs in Productivity/Multimedia/Other when half the codecs it uses are in Productivity/Multimedia/Video/Editors and Converters? Why is guvcview in Productivity/Multimedia/Video/Players when cheese is in Productivity/Multimedia/Other? What is Networking doing under Producitivity? What is IRC doing under Networking? Why is ghostscript in Producitivity/Office/Other when the ghostscript fonts are all under Productivity/Publishing/PS? Why is the ghostscript fonts not under System/X11/Fonts? Why the hell is a gnome-calculator considered Productivity/Scientific/Math and gedit is Productivity/Text/Editors but most of the other GNOME apps are System/GUI/GNOME? Why is apparmor-abstractions Productivity/Security when apparmor-parser is Productivity/Networking/Security? WHAT DOES APPARMOR HAVE TO DO WITH PRODUCTIVITY? Why is sysfsutils in System/Libraries? Why is YaST not System/Management? Why in Podman in System/Management? Why do we have System/Sound Daemons when the only thing in it is PulseAudio and all the other Sound Daemons are in System/Libraries? Wtf is xdmbgrd doing in System/X11/Displaymanagers? WTH is tigervnc doing in System/X11/Servers/XF86_4? WTH is System/X11/Servers/XF86_4? Why is gnome-logs in System/X11/Utilities not System/GUI/GNOME? Why is hicolor-icon-theme in System/X11/Utilities? Why is xorg-x11 in System/X11/Utilities not System/X11/Servers? WTH is numlockx doing in System/YaST?
I imagine if I went through with a fine toothcomb I'd find more examples, plus of course this is a sample size of approximately ~10% of the distributions packages.
More than ever I am now convinced that the RPM Groups we have in the distribution right deserve to be thrown away with prejudice, and I'm not interested in considering an alternative until that's been done so we can start from a nice clean slate.
