Package group between repositories

arch dev mailing list
Currently the 'xfce4-goodies' package group[1] is in split between [extra]
and [community]. Most of its packages are in [extra], but 'ristretto' and
'xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin' are in [community].

My question is: is it okay, or should we avoid it by removing these two
packages from the 'xfce4-goodies' group or moving them to [extra]?

Groups are just for convenience and members don't have to be in the same
repository. The latter also applies to regular dependencies these days
as it's more practical to have a dependency maintained by a TU than left
rotten in [extra]. At least that's my view on it.

If a TU is maintaining the packages in [community], there is little
point moving them.

Then if it's okay, I would like to add the following [community] packages
to groups based on upstream sources:
- gnome-boxes (gnome)
- gnome-multi-writer (gnome-extra)
- gnome-recipes (gnome-extra)
- gnome-software (gnome)
- parole (xfce4-goodies)
- simple-scan (gnome)

Please don't add gnome-software to the gnome group, at least not without
removing packagekit support.
