Description of problem:
Currently, dnf doesn't allow package specs when using the distro-sync command.
# dnf distro-sync <package>
distro-sync accepts no package specs.
It would be nice if it did, as that functionality is very useful.
yes indeed this is missing and a part of the backlog. it is unfortunately not as straightforward as it might seem given we do a "global" distro-sync already.

(to properly emulate what yum is doing, if we want to do that, we might need to use SOLVER_TARGETED when using the *_to() methods in hawkey with SOLVER_DISTUPGRADE)
Moving to Jan. Jan, mls tells me this is supported in libsolv just like other jobs (update, install). Please take a look, it will require extending hawkey which should be done in a way consistent to the other commands.
The feature is available in the upstream.
