     90= Dealing with the objects = 
     91 
     92Note that as you move to groups as an object there are times when you have to deal with that object and no others. Eg. you can now have a group "foo" installed, but it contain no installed packages. Or you want to remove a group, but not any of the packages that are in that group, or you want to add an already installed package to an already installed group. 
     93 
     94Currently the "best" way to do this is with a bunch of yum commands that start with "mark" under the groups subcommand. Eg. 
     95 
     96*    yum group mark-install foo 
     97 
     98will make yum believe that a group object is installed without a transaction (or altering any packages). 
     99 
     100*    yum group mark-remove foo 
     101 
     102will make yum believe that a group object is not installed without a transaction (or altering any packages). 
     103 
     104*    yum group mark-packages foo pkgA pkgB... 
     105 
     106will make yum believe that "pkgA pkgB..." were installed as part of the group "foo".
