Do the dnf developers know about this rumor...?
In recent Fedora releases DNF has stopped complaining when it's invoked
as "yum". /usr/bin/yum is provided by the package dnf-yum, produced
from the source package dnf, so apparently at least the packagers of
DNF know about it.
It was discussed on this list last June. The renaming to DNF never
happened in RHEL/CentOS. It's Yum in RHEL 7 and (I hear) it will be Yum
in RHEL 8. Presumably the reason for this is that the sysadmins who
manage RHEL systems like continuity, dislike pointless renaming, and
really hate having to remember to type "dnf" on some servers and
on others for no good reason.
