Installing meta packages

A meta package, identified by the -meta suffix (plasma-meta for example), provides similar functionality to a package group in that it enables multiple related packages to be installed simultaneously. Meta packages can be installed just like any other package, see #Installing specific packages.

The only difference between a meta package and a regular package is that a meta package is empty and exists purely to link other packages together through dependencies.
