In the ticket, one of the DNF maintainers said that the target audience
of the copr plugin are developers using copr. That's IMHO completely
wrong. Ubuntu has had the private repo infrastructure for years and it's
used by a wide user base, definitely not only by developers or not even
only by experience users. For example the GNOME 3.12 copr repo is used
by thousands of users nowadays. Moreover the plugin is IMHO targeted
rather at normal users to make adding a new copr repo easier for them.
Developers have no problem with the traditional way.

If the maintainers don't want to maintain it in dnf-plugins-core, I
don't think we can do much about it. The question is if the plugin
(whether it's part of dnf-plugins-core or in a separate package) should
be preinstalled. And that's something working groups should decide. I'm
100% for having it preinstalled at least in Workstation.
