I have did a first review in the proposed patches and I think there is
a need for a comparing of existing packagegroups with the proposed
ones. The proposed ones has equivalent ones already included (for
graphics and benchmark for example) and it indicates the internal
review of the feasibility and features offered by the current ones has
not been done as needed.

Please check the existing ones and propose patches to extend them for
what they are missing; those seem more polished than the ones proposed
and more granular as well.

Another thing I would like to use is a fsl-image-networking and
fsl-image-virtualization images instead of 'core' and 'extended' as it
looks like images without a clear purpose and this is confusing for
the users.
