Project Description

DNF 5 is a package manager that is currently in development and will land in the future Fedora and RHEL versions. Some openSUSE community members would like to use it in SUSE distros as well. It's also an excellent opportunity to practice C++ add-emoji

Goal for this Hackweek

  • ✅ implement the most common aliases (in for install, up for update/upgrade etc.)
    • [dnf5] Get dnf closer to zypper by adding command aliases #1552
  • ❌ create a testing repo in the build.opensuse.org
  • ❌ identify gaps in dnf5's functionality and report them as issues on GitHub
  • ✅ implement some of the issues as the time allows
    • [dnf5] Implement basic search command #1555
    • [dnf5] Simplify metadata downloading by using LoadFlags everywhere #1556
    • incomplete, to be submitted: alternative to zypper ps
    • related PRs submitted prior HackWeek:
      • [dnf5] Make modulemd optional #1546
      • [dnf5] Make aliases optional #1548

      Will it use libzypp?

        No, dnf uses libdnf. Both libdnf and libzypp use libsolv for dependency resolution, repository loading etc.
