Just a copycat of yum module to dnf module. Mainly usefull for Fedora 19

@sorin-ionescu

Is DNF popular?

@firewavemtl

Not yet but it will become very quickly. Now, it's an alternate to yum on Fedora18 (official release). But it will be by default on Fedora 19, which will be release by the end of april. RedHatEL will be the next. DNF is forked and part-recoded of yum.
Sorry I know it's a lazy patch!

Do they suffer from the not-invented-here syndrome?

Yes.

@firewavemtl

Retro-compatibility and great dep resolution. But ya, kind of not-invented-here syndrome

@sorin-ionescu

Will other RPM-based yum distributions switch to DNF as well?

@sorin-ionescu

Perhaps one RPM module is better than a bunch of modules that all deal with RPM packages?

@sorin-ionescu

I have read an article on Phoronix that says that dnf will be renamed to yum, and it will be the new yum version; so, this module might not be necessary.

@sorin-ionescu

I have also read that dnf stands for nothing, and it will be renamed to something other than yum. Anyway, dnf won't be adopted until Fedora 22; so, I'll be rejecting this pull request for now.
