How important is comps.xml to us these days? Which packages should be in comps.xml and which not?

You think we NEED a "KDE Software Development group". PackageKit is not
designed for you. Can you explain how having fine grained groups would
help people like: ?

PackageKit is not designed for the sort of users who are comfortable
using yum on the command line. PackageKit doesn't replace yum, it's just
complimentary. If we designed PK as a "suitable for any user" tool then
it would be suitable for no-one. Hence the need for a profiles page.
