In general it does not really make sense to install packages based on
groups.

It was not so much about installation, but exploration in related
software. (To me, anyway.)[...]
With the high group memberships numbers today (Languages/Haskell alone
for example is 2000+ pkgs) - not to mention the terrible package
descriptions that usually go along with it - the yast group view
certainly feels more like a telephone book than a curated guide.

Ah yeah, you remind me that I wanted to discuss with the Haskell team if we
can make the rpm Group tags better somehow.

I looked at the Package Hub page you pointed to, and was surprised to notice
myself finding that I would totally want to retain RPM groups for games,
while *anything* from development is totally explore-un-worthy to me.

I recognize it's all about "getting something done" vs "getting entertained".
Desktop themes would be another thing that falls in the second one
and therefore benefits from grouping like games.

Maybe this insight helps in finding where to go :)
