Well, a "bug" is a behavior that is contrary to what the code is supposed to
do in that situation.

So the fact that Rev keeps "internal" groups that have no representation is
not a bug if that was the way it was designed, regardless of whether you
like it or not, or whether the community likes it or not.

The App Browser, since it is written in Rev, displays things for a stack
that are on cards, but doesn't (currently) show any unplaced groups that the
stack possesses. This is why Geoff called it a "limitation" - the App
Browser should probably show this, but just because it doesn't show it
doesn't mean it's a bug either. Remember the definition of a "bug" above -
if the App Browser was *supposed* to show unplaced groups and *didn't*, then
that would be a bug.

However, regardless of whether this is a bug or limitation, I feel something
should be done to address it so that this situation doesn't happen again.

Just my 2 cents,
