Hi all,

Using build x86_64-20140630 (and previous [Grrr, I've just noticed
x86_64-20140702, I'll try that once I've got it down]), I can do 
a "yum -v grouplist" and get what looks like the correct output,
but when I try installing one of the groups, the following happens -

[root at maintsas ~]# yum groupinstall scientific
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
There is no installed groups file.
Maybe run: yum groups mark convert (see man yum)
base                                                                                                                                                                                                                  | 3.6 kB  00:00:00     
epel                                                                                                                                                                                                                  | 3.7 kB  00:00:00     
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Warning: Group scientific does not have any packages to install.
Maybe run: yum groups mark install (see man yum)
No packages in any requested group available to install or update

I'm fairly sure this shouldn't be happening :)

Cheers! (Relax...have a homebrew)
