(https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs_Project) or the publican
xmlto is listed as a default package under "Authoring and Publishing"

gedit is a default package in the GNOME Desktop environment
nano is a default package in the Base group
pico is provided by alpine which is included in the "Text-based internet

I see minicom in both "Electronic Lab" and "Dial-up networking".
Perhaps a good question for Chitlesh (see

samba is optional for the "Directory Server". While, samba is a
mandatory package in the "Windows File Server" group.

It's listed as a mandatory package under the 'web server' group. So you
don't see it in the list of optional packages.
Additional information on how these groups of packages are generated and
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_use_and_edit_comps.xml_for_package_groups. Specifically, you can examine the contents of the different optional/required/mandatory packages in each group at http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/comps/comps-f12.xml.in?view=markup
