Description Tomas Mlcoch 2016-04-15 03:28:18 EDT
I have a repository "/path/to/repo/" with 3 packages, but when I run:

$ REPOID="160415-6" && dnf repoquery --repofrompath="$REPOID,file:///path/to/repo/" --disablerepo='*' --enablerepo="$REPOID" '*'

I get gazillion of packages.

Yum based repoquery works as expected:

$ REPOID="160415-6" && repoquery --repofrompath="$REPOID,file:///home/tmlcoch/git/createrepo_c/rpms_1/" --disablerepo='*' --enablerepo="$REPOID" '*'

My configuration:

$ cat /etc/fedora-release 
Fedora release 23 (Twenty Three)

$ rpm -q dnf hawkey libsolv librepo python-hawkey python-librepo

We should consider how to make included available and installed by some options.
Comment 2 Jaroslav Mracek 2016-05-06 04:45:45 EDT
Repoquery from yum-utils shows only available package with higher version. ``yum info`` installed and only available package with higher version (install only packages works differently). 
We want that?:
1. ``dnf repoquery`` should show all available packages
2. ``dnf repoquery --installed`` only installed
3. ``dnf repoquery --installed --available`` all packages (this is at present time unsupported combination)

Or it should behave exactly like repoquery (same options, behavior)?

Here are some examples of yum - dnf compatibility:

repoquery --show-duplicates '*' = dnf repoquery --available

repoquery '*' = dnf repoquery --latest-limit=1 --available

The question is, if it is worth to change dnf repoquery behavior if same thing can be done by compatible layer for users, that like yum behavior, or by ``dnf repoquery`` options?

A made a pull-request that will allow --available as a default option:
