Well, but there will have to be one, at least when the time comes and 
dnf will proposed as default. At that point someone (fesco?) will have 
to evaluate it and vote and either accept it or refuse it. And as I see 
it, the decision will have to be based on some criteria, so I'm actually 
asking for this criteria to be revealed now so we can end this thread in 
piece and get back to work...

Well, I can use dnf in it's current shape quite fine and it works faster 
than yum which I take as an improvement, so for me it's ok. So what now?
