What on earth is an 'optigroup'??
Group DevelopersGroup Documentation writersGroup Particularly helpful Moodlers

I've been reading through the backup code (lucky me) and this term comes up all the time. It means nothing to me and I can't find any other reference. 

Just to satisfy my curiosity, can any of you computer science nerds explain what it means?

Assuming it wasn't just something Eloy invented of course wink

Eloy is your main suspect but you have 3 more:

% ack-grep optigroup | grep / | cut -d: -f1 | sort | uniq | xargs -n 1 git blame | grep optigroup | cut -d' ' -f2,3 | sort | uniq -c

I think it may mean "optional group".
