Description Parag Nemade 2015-07-19 07:25:00 UTC
Description of problem:
We have yum hooks information -> http://yum.baseurl.org/wiki/WritingYumPlugins

We have dnf hooks information ->  http://dnf.readthedocs.org/en/latest/api_plugins.html

We need documentation like if there is any similar hook in dnf compared to yum. Also, any difference if both have similar hooks but different functionality.

I tried to prepare https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Pnemade/dnf-hooks page but dnf developers are best people to add this information in upstream dnf documentation.

Comment 1 Radek Holy 2015-07-20 07:02:43 UTC
I'd just note that DNF API was never meant to be similar to YUM API. Such comparison may be misleading then. But I admit that the hook documentation can be richer. I mean, I'd use same words which are used in YUM's documentation rather then mentioning the YUM hooks in DNF's documentation. If we would refer to YUM hooks, other users may ask for similar comparison of other DNF functions later and in the end it may be totally confusing since we will be receiving reports like "You claim that this function/hook is similar to this YUM function/hook. I used to do this but it does not work with DNF despite the fact the it should be similar.".

Parag, can you make a pull request to DNF with this table in new page "api_vs_yum.rst", please?
