Description Patrick Schleizer 2016-07-02 21:18:31 UTC
Please implement /etc/dnf/conf.d.

Same as /etc/yum.conf.d.

A folder where one can place drop-in configuration snippets.

Comment 1 Patrick Schleizer 2016-07-03 21:53:20 UTC
use case:

Editing config files such as /etc/dnf/dnf.conf with scripts / config packages is problematic for various reasons. When modifying it as a sysadmin it may later conflict with settings changed by the user.

Also if dnf is updated and any changes are made to /etc/dnf/dnf.conf by dnf, these cannot be automatically merged. It will result in a /etc/dnf/dnf.conf.rpmnew file that needs to be manually resolved.

It would be a lot simpler / more convenient if scripts / config packages could just drop configuration snippets into /etc/dnf/conf.d. Debian has something similar with /etc/apt/conf.d.

we can do that but it has low priority.

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
