dnf.transaction.TransactionItem is documented as containing a set of packages to be removed and/or installed and two methods to access these (installs() and removes()).
Unfortunately not a single thing in that description is actually true.
In reality dnf.transaction.TransactionItem is really a dnf.db.history.RPMTransactionItemWrapper. It represents a _single_ package being modified. It mimics many of the methods of the package itself, as well as some extra methods to determine its role in the overall transaction.
A decision needs to be made as to what is public API in this class, and the documentation rewritten.
See also bug 1709359 which has a request on what we'd like to get out of a future TransactionItem API.

That bug seems to be closed. Something that can be opened up?
From what I can see this has not been resolved. And bug 1693511 is still secret. So I'm reopening this.
