I found your email a bit confusing, so hopefully this is what you
are after:

(1) virt-builder --install is implemented using 'yum install'

(2) virt-customize --install is implemented using 'yum install'

For (1) and (2) I intend to replace yum with dnf when the guest
version is Fedora >= 22 (or 23?)

(3) virt-v2v uses 'yum install' and 'yum resolvedep' both for very
complicated reasons.  It may be best just to read the source:


(4) supermin uses yumdownloader.  We would like to replace it with
'dnf download' except that it is broken (RHBZ#1157233).

virt-p2v converts physical machines to virtual machines.  Boot with a
live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into KVM guests.
