CPAN::Changes::Group - A group of related change information within a release

my $rel = CPAN::Changes::Release->new(
    version => '0.01',
    date    => '2009-07-06',
my $grp = CPAN::Changes::Group->new(
    name => 'BugFixes',
  'Return a Foo object instead of a Bar object in foobar()'
$rel->attach_group( $grp ); # clobbers existing group if present.

A release is made up of several groups. This object provides access to all of the key data that embodies a such a group.
