dnf copr fails on centos 7

Description of problem:
dnf copr fails on centos 7, even with dnf-plugins-core
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf copr info
No such command: copr. Please use /bin/dnf --help
It could be a DNF plugin command.
Error: exactly two additional parameters to copr command are required
enable name/project [chroot]
Following copr directions, I did
dnf install dnf-plugins-core
While that package includes
it lacks the python code to support copr.
On fedora, this code is in the package
and the file
but that package doesn't exist in centos 7.
In Epel there is version dnf-plugins-core-0.1.5-3 which does not have copr plugin due missing dependency.
In later version of dnf-plugins-core the copr plugin was rewritten to use different library and can be build for Epel without problem.
So this can be fixed by releasing recent dnf-plugins-core version to Epel7.
The problem is still there.
Can we get dnf-plugins-core updated in epel7?
There's no DNF in EPEL already.
