Not exactly true.
When documentaion state: put this file in /etc/yum.repos.d/ ... then it will be still
valid. DNF will read that file
without a problem.
We *may* start slowly change these documentation to "put this file in
Only invalid statement will be "fedora.repo is in /etc/yum.repos.d/"
This isn't a great experience, though. It's kind of nice having all
the repository files in one place-- it means that if I want to find
out which repositories are enabled or installed without actually using
dnf, I can just look at the contents of a single directory.
Breaking that up into two+ directories will just make this slightly
more difficult and annoying. This might be okay if there was a strong
reason in favor of making the change, but it's not clear to me that
there is one beyond a desire to get away from using the name "yum".
