#1625 DNF-2 release into rawhide
Closed None Opened 5 years ago by jsilhan.

= phenomenon =
We would like to release DNF-2 (upstream DNF version), which is incompatible with DNF-1 in same cases, into rawhide

= reason =
DNF-2 will bring many new features and bug fixes, DNF-1 is no longer
maintained anymore. Unfortunately it brings some incompatibilities
with previous version of DNF (DNF-1) which were either needed to
preserve compatibility with yum CLI or where bigger redesigns were
needed.

= recommendation =
Owners of 3rd party DNF plugins or components depending on DNF should adjust their packages otherwise they may not work with DNF-2. The changes listed can be seen here [1].

Majority of components in Fedora repository requiring DNF were checked and patches has been provided [2][3][4] to adapt them to DNF-2. DNF-PLUGINSCORE and EXTRAS are binded to DNF-2 in the upstream. All owners of components in Fedora were notified and message has been sent to fdl. Can we proceed with the DNF-2 release in rawhide?

+1 to this being filed as a System Wide Change.

We discussed this at the last meeting and the consensus was that you should submit a System Wide Change proposal:
