What packages are included in a Fedora 30 workstation install?

Hello, does somebody have a list of all packages installed on a fresh Fedora 30 installation?
I know I can use dnf command with a fresh fedora on a VM. but this will take time.
Thank you.

@container-management
@core
@firefox
@fonts
@gnome-desktop
@guest-desktop-agents
@hardware-support
@libreoffice
@multimedia
@networkmanager-submodules
@printing
@workstation-product

You can see what these groups include in the “comps” files where they are defined. The two major ones are:

What is the meaning of type="optional" for some packages? Are they installed with fedora or not?

Packages marked optional are not installed on default workstation.
