    I'm surprised only by how long they're waiting. It was justifiable to have both yum and dnf side-by-side for one release - but that was F22, when dnf became the default. I really don't understand the reasoning for keeping them both - with their own package databases - for at least six releases. What's the reasoning for not dropping it back in F23?

      He said getting angry about "some decisions", all those buzzwords are unrelated.

        everybody has an opinion on this, but i dont think this is particularly noteworthy

        I understand that this is not my enterprise, and appreciate the opportunity to have my say but I feel that progress is natural, and maybe it is that I dont know who this will hurt, I just feel like we all know that some times some things got to go. I hope Im not being too blunt. Oh well. Hafa Adai.

          One thing I think is uncontroversial:
          Are there anyone who prefers dnf over zypper?

          IIRC, the dnf developer said zypper lacked a python backend or api (or something) – not anything user visible.

          Anyway, you can use zypper on Fedora (not sure if the repos are compatible): I did that to chroot-install OpenSuse once.
