            What you mean like them saying "We're developing this rather than just taking zypper because we want a drop in replacement for yum", and it turning out to not be a drop in replacement for yum, and so they stuck with naming it dnf rather than renaming it yum, and then when pressed on it squirm around about how they're using libzypp and so they're effectively using zypper?

              why they Keep PackageSpit around is beyond me. when Gnome-Software handles most of it nowadays anyway

                Gnome Software uses PackageKit as backend which depends on libdnf currently under redesign.
