great summary, thanks.
Opponents start killing off Group tag even though that
against the goal of the Group/Tags subproject and its Supporters. Bad.
Opponents claim "it was decided", but this decision was at best
unilateral and there is anything _but_ consensus about the removal. In
doing so, they also overstep other maintainers [SR 738421]. Very bad.
Although I'm far away from the center of decisions in the openSUSE project,
I also have the gut feeling that a) this topic has not been discussed until
the end, and b) no agreed decision has ever been made (or published).
So maybe some of us all have already started with the seemingly easy
and tempting task to remove the Group tags - I for myself almost fell
in that same mood/trap (but refrained from sending a SR because I wanted
to wait for the "official decision", and then removed my branches again).
I personally like Groups. For sure, re-assigning some packages to other
Groups may be necessary now and also in future - still I see it's the
best categorization we currently have.
Have a nice day,
