Manually grouping and organizing profiles

I have installed a lot of profiles from different vendors. Usually they automatically place themselves nicely in groups in the Profile Browser. But some of them come in separate groups, even if they are from the same vendor. This looks pretty messy. When I choose "Manage Profiles" I can only activate or deactivate them, but I can not choose how they are grouped. 

 

And it doesn't seem to be sufficient to put them in the same folder in the Settings folder where the profiles are stored. Is there a way I can manually group these profiles?

I tried to open a profile file in TextEdit, and as I thought, the group name is baked into the file itself. I managed to change the group name, but even if I give profiles the same group name, they still appear in separate groups in the Profile Browser, named "GroupName", "GroupName (1)", etc. There is still something I do not quite understand.

I found it! The area between two lines in the Profile Browser is called a cluster. And profiles grouped together after a clickable triangle is a group.

To change this, one can right click on a profile in the Profile Browser and choose "Show in Finder", then open the file in TextEdit. One of the first code lines is: 

 

crs:Cluster="ClusterName".

Replace the name between "…" to whatever you want. 

 

Then scroll all the way down to one of the last lines:

<rdf:li xml:lang="x-default">GroupName</rdf:li>

 

Replace the name between >…< to whatever you want.
