    I thought "Do Not Fork" first.

Its "official" in that the developers haven't come up with anything better...and don't see a need to since its official name, once its released and the 'default', is already picked out. In this case, its release name will be (by all known accounts thusfar) "yum".
      So kind of like code names of yet-to-be-named projects like games and software, I suppose?

        We need a cross distro Package Manager that handles rpm and .deb!

          One already available is "smart":
          http://labix.org/smart
          It's the default in Yocto:
          https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Smart
          which in turn supports several different packages formats (rpm5 is the default).

          The dependency resolver library, libsatsolver, is developed by opensuse, is in use in zypper and dnf, and supports deb.

            Mhmm. The plan on the wiki is for Fedora 22 to be the target release of DNF whereupon it will be installed by default and renamed to be 'yum.' old yum will be removed and everyone will automatically start using dnf without even realizing it (except for developers who have to make sure they arent using deprecated functinality that has now been removed)
