Advise against using yumex-dnf for actual package transactions #157
There are a number of quite massive problems with yumex-dnf, some of them with many details unclear: #155 #129 and the big list on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/buglist.cgi?bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&component=yumex-dnf&list_id=7196025&product=Fedora&query_format=advanced
Even I (as a contributor) stopped using yumex-dnf for actual package transactions, because it broke too often. And I don't have time or interest to get all those bugs reported or fixed.
Since there is no manpower to get those bugs fixed in time I suggest disabling the "update" feature and reducing the yumex-dnf feature set to reading package metadata (incl. search) and reading the package database.
If we can't do that, I will suggest deprecating and removing yumex-dnf from Fedora repositories, because it might cause too much harm to people using it.
Thanks a lot for all the help from you and other contributors.
If someone steps up and will take over the project, then i will give them access to there repositories
