add dnf support

This is a patch to add basic dnf support.

Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2015-05-26 22:16:40 UTC
Michael - would you care to file a PR upstream?  https://github.com/cobbler/cobbler/

Comment 3 Jaroslav Mracek 2016-01-06 16:07:54 UTC
Please could you confirm, that the last version is fully compatible with dnf. If yes than please close the bug report.

Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2016-01-11 16:55:23 UTC
No, it has not been fully ported to dnf.  We have a patch to use dnf repoquery instead on yum-utils repoquery, but that's about it.  cobbler still uses the yum python api.

Comment 5 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2017-02-15 22:20:54 UTC
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 6 Michal Domonkos 2019-01-21 16:20:21 UTC
Please note that we're about to drop YUM-3 completely from Fedora in the near future.  Currently, we'd like to make this happen in Fedora 30 which goes out in April.

If you have any plans to port cobbler to the DNF API, please consider doing that as we cannot guarantee YUM-3 availability in the upcoming Fedora releases anymore.

Work on this is proceeding upstream
