Replace Yumex-DNF with dnfdragora

Summary

Replace the current alternative graphical package manager.


Owner


Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 27
  • Last updated: 2017-03-23
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>


Detailed Description

Yumex-DNF needs a replacement, since upstream stopped development[1]. With dnfdragora[2] we have a versatile (Qt, GTK and NCurses interface) replacement.


Benefit to Fedora

Provide an up-to-date graphical package-manager to be used in spins and/or by power-users on Server and Workstation products.


Scope

  • Proposal owners:
    • Adjust packaging of dnfdragora to properly obsolete/provides yumex-dnf.
  • Other developers:
    • Adjust default package-manager of alternative desktop-evironment's packages, if applicable.
    • Make needed changes to kickstarts and/or comps.
  • Release engineering:
    • Merge changes to kickstarts and/or comps.

Upgrade/compatibility impact

Properly obsolete Yumex-DNF and automatically replace it by dnfdragora using Obsoletes / Provides. Make changes (if needed) to the different desktop-packages used by the spins and make changes to the kickstart-files and comps for the spins.


How To Test

Upgrade a spin currently still using Yumex-DNF to Fedora 27. dnfdragora should be installed automatically.


User Experience

The impact on user expirience should be kept as small as possible. Integrate dnfdragora into the several alternative desktops as good as Yumex-DNF.
