    Phoronix: Yum vs. DNF Is Still Causing Headaches For Fedora Logistics

    While the DNF package manager as the "next-generation Yum" has been in development for over a half-decade and has been the default over traditional Yum for a number of Fedora releases, it's still causing headaches for some and a subset of users still desiring that DNF be renamed to Yum...

        Silverblue doesn't use yum (or dnf) so it makes sense to use /etc/distro.repos.d

        I say go for it.

        Still read from /etc/yum.repos.d for a while, no need to symlink.

          I don't care that much personally, but I think they could have avoided this issue if they didn't come up with such a bad name. Yum is a good name, pithy, easy to write and say.

            Did not one person ever google for dnf to see what it means?

            Did Not Finish

            Starting to seem appropriate...

              So? Just abbr -a yum dnf

              Problem solved.
              (and there's a way to do it for bash as well)

                "Why is my DNF config in /etc/yum.repos.d?"

                  logical nonsense - not every repo is from the distro
