Since 1998, each program included in the FreeDOS distribution is made available as a Package. The distribution divides these FreeDOS packages into Groups, sometimes called Sets.
The Base group contains only those programs that reproduce the functionality of classic DOS. The other groups contain software that you may find useful, such as games and editors.
