== Detailed Description ==
For DNF 2.0 in Fedora 25, the DNF team would like to make the default
repository configuration directory /etc/distro.repos.d. In contrast to
/etc/yum.repos.d (current default path), /etc/distro.repos.d path is a
package manager agnostic name and less misleading. The configuration
files are currently used by DNF, PackageKit, and Yum. The proposed
location more accurately reflects the nature of the repositories, and
also implies that other tools can look there for repository
information. Note: current default repository configuration directory
/etc/yum.repos.d will still be supported by package managers but
/etc/distro.repos.d would be preferred default path.
== Scope ==
* Proposal owners:
DNF already supports /etc/distro.repos.d, but it should be set as default.
Yum will need to use the new path by default while supporting the current one.
* Other developers:
PackageKit's Hif backend will need to use the new path by default
while supporting the current one.
fedora-repos and fedora-workstation-repositories will need to change
to the new path.
* Release engineering: N/A
List of deliverables: N/A (Not needed for this Change)
* Policies and guidelines:
Packages containing repository configuration will need to change to
store repo files in /etc/distro.repos.d.
* Trademark approval: N/A (not needed for this Change)
