Description Cristian Ciupitu 2014-01-03 21:31:18 UTC
Description of problem:
Log to the journal natively instead of /var/log/dnf.log and /var/log/dnf.rpm.log.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dnf-0.4.10-1.fc20.noarch

Additional info:
dnf could use some extra fields to describe better (for machines, not humans) what's going on, e.g. PACKAGE (could be kernel, glibc, firefox etc), ACTION (could be update, erase, install etc).

Some log entries in JSON format from yum-3.4.3-128.fc20.noarch:

Comment 1 Ales Kozumplik 2014-01-06 07:35:52 UTC
Low priority for now with the outlook of closing this without fixing---there is not enough users who would benefit from this, but let's see how many people get CCed.

Comment 2 Cristian Ciupitu 2014-01-06 07:42:42 UTC
I agree with the low priority. I'm not exactly dying to have this
feature, but I thought it would be good to have a record for it.

Comment 3 Ales Kozumplik 2014-01-06 07:47:38 UTC
Closing per discussion on IRC.
