Comps consumers (that is the Fedora grouping metadata) typically hide
the empty groups, so that when one repo hands you a group definition but
you don't have any packages that show up in that group, you just hide
the group.  There are some icky heuristic as to how many packages must
be present in a group in order for the group to be 'visible' and that
same heuristic should probably be used by all comps consumers.
