Detailed Description

Currently when users install packages using dnf with langpacks they have to install the langpacks themselves by hand (if they even know about them).

This is similar to what we have yum langpacks plugin which is already a Features/YumLangpackPlugin in Fedora.

Benefit to Fedora

Users will get langpacks for the given language installed using single langinstall command. Langpacks plugin also provide commands langremove to remove already installed langpacks, langinfo to find what packages will get installed for any language and langavailable to find if langpacks are available for the given languages.
