Bug Description

There are numerous problems with current comps.xml:

* xorg packages are named X11 (we use package names here, not provide names)
* base and basic sets mark old and broken software such as syslog (syslog-ng is preferred for new systems, syslog is broken and does not start with the default config)
* GNOME and KDE sets were not tested at all

likely the remained ones should be dropped or xorg packages part rewritten, as
it's way too complete set imho.

the command that was used for conversion is recorded here for commit log:

First wave of changes went in yesterday (mostly GNOME- and base-related).

Known problems with the current state: something goes wrong and syslog is marked instead of syslog-ng.
