Dear packagers,

Thanks for starting to move your packages to the new RPM group
hierarchy. There is however still lots to do.

As a reminder, here is the policy:

Please try to fit your packages into these categories. I take notes of
the complaints I hear, so that for the next iteration (~Beta1 time), we
can adjust the policy a tiny bit.

Before that, can everyone get on with implementing the new RPM group
policy, and especially:

- Documentation group replaces the Books/* groups (still 490 packages),
so please change the groups of all your doc subpackages to Documentation

- Office (still 445 packages), Sound (749), Graphics (425) and Video
(641) are split in the new policy, please start changing the groups to
have a finer grain classification.
