           yum-groups-manager [options] [packages]


           yum-groups-manager  is used to create or edit a group metadata file for
           a yum repository. This is often much easier than  writting/editing  the
           XML  by hand.  The yum-groups-manager can load an entire file of groups
           metadata and either create a new group or edit an  existing  group  and
           then write all of the groups metadata back out.


           -h, --help
                  Display a help message, and then quit.
                  Display a version message, and then quit.
           -n, --name
                  The name to lookup/use for the group. If you specify an existing
                  group id, then the group  with  that  id  will  have  it's  name
                  changed to this value.
           --id   The  id to lookup/use for the group. If you don't specify an id,
                  but do specify a name that doesn't refer to an  existing  group,
                  then an id for the group is generated based on the name.
                  The description to use for the group.
                  Store  the  package names specified within the mandatory section
                  of the specified group, the default is to use the  default  sec-
                  tion. This overrides the optional argument.
                  Store the package names specified within the optional section of
                  the specified group, the default is to use the default  section.
                  This option is overridden by the mandatory argument.
                  Also include the names of the direct dependencies for each pack-
                  age specified.
                  Make the group not visible in yum grouplist.
                  Make the group visible in yum grouplist (this is the default).
                  Change the integer which controls the order groups are presented
                  in, for example in yum grouplist.
                  Also print the result to stdout, if saving or merging.
                  Instead  of  adding package, remove them. Note that the packages
                  are removed from all sections (default, mandatory and optional).
                  This  is another name for the group within the locale given. The
                  syntax is lang:text. Eg. en:my-group-name-in-english
                  This is another description for  the  group  within  the  locale
                  given.  The syntax is lang:text. Eg. en:my-group-description-in-


           The following options are meant to be the same as those with  the  same
           name in yum.
           -c CONFIG, --config=CONFIG
           -C, --cache


           Create  a  new  group metadata file, with a group called yum containing
           all the packages that start with yum:
                   yum-groups-manager --name YUM --save groups.xml 'yum*'
           After  the  above  command, load the groups.xml data, work with the yum
           group, make the group not user visible, and remove the  yum-skip-broken
           and yum-priorities packages from it:
                   yum-groups-manager -n YUM --merge groups.xml --remove yum-skip-
                  broken yum-priorities --not-user-visible
           After the above commands, add a description and a  translated  name  to
           the yum group:
                   yum-groups-manager  -n  YUM  --merge  groups.xml  --description


           See the Authors file included with this program.


           There are a couple of options you can't set, yet. Most notabley you cannot put
           package names into the conditional section (where they are installed with
           groupinstall only if another package is installed).
           Other than that, there are no bugs, but should you find any, you should first
           consult the FAQ section on and if unsuccessful
           in finding a resolution contact the mailing list:
           To file a bug use for Fedora/RHEL/Centos
           related bugs and for all other bugs.
