Description of problem:
Fedora 22 is planning to switch over to dnf from yum as per
Please switch from yum/yum-utils to dnf/dnf-plugins-core. Thanks!
Just to note that this is causing us pain because updates pushes use mash which uses yum which can't understand rich boolean deps in Requires/Recommends.
There's already been 2 cases of packages that wished to use this that we had to revert because the tooling isn't up to snuff. ;(
I have got an information from Dennis Gilmore about evaluation of future of this package. If there is a future for this package, I could provide some help with conversion. But please make a decision.
here are some future highlights ;-)
mash is slowly going to be replaced by koji signed repos (already merged upstream) and locally (outside of koji) trough pagure.io/pungi. Pungi should also replace distill, distill-ng and puddle.
(Still leaving dgilmore's needinfo for confirmation)
we will be killing off mash in favour of koji's signed repos, but both signed repos and pungi use yum still. so it will not solve the problem.

pungi-5 prototype doesn't ... but yeah you're right Dennis ... that's sort of why I wrote "future highlights".
Signed repos solve nothing now, since it's based on the same code as mash - and that code still uses yum.
We ideally need to migrate mash to dnf and then use it as a library in koji signed repos and pungi.
