dnf vs yum

Hi

Of course, dnf repoquery for packages that depend on yum/yum-utils yielded
quite a few more packages.  So I have filed RFE's against all of them and
added them to the tracker and fixed the wiki references etc just to
complete this process

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/showdependencytree.cgi?id=1156491

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/ReplaceYumWithDNF

It is possible, even likely that some packages just assumed yum/yum-utils
would always be there and didn't add an explicitly dependency.  Since some
base tools including mock still depend on yum by default in rawhide, we
wouldn't know about those hidden issues till those are ported
over/dependency on yum is dropped.
