Define the Group For Your Package

Packages are categorized into groups. These group names, while not always the best, appear in the graphical tools such as the Red Hat package manager. If your application is a Linux shell program, then users will expect to find it in the System Environment/Shells group and not the Development/Languages or System Environment/Daemons groups. This is a rather small detail, but it helps users find your package in the huge array of Linux RPMs.
The official list of RPM groups is located in /usr/share/doc/rpm-4.1/GROUPS for RPM 4.1, and similarly-named directories for other RPM versions.
