Description Karel Srot 2019-02-25 07:42:34 UTC
Description of problem:

# dnf alias add install='install -y'
Aliases added: install

# dnf alias list
Aliases contain infinite recursion, alias install

1. dnf should print at least the actual definition so it is obvious to what the message above is referring

# dnf install foo
Aliases contain infinite recursion, using original arguments.

2. dnf alias man page should mention that in case of infinite recursion the original arguments (and not the alias) are used
