has become tremendously more difficult due to incomplete and improper
handling of RH/Fedora modules.
I've filed issues related to these two problems, but I've also

In order to fix these problems and to open the door to future features
that would benefit people wanting to manage Linux distributions that

* DNF is available for SUSE distributions, with support for handling
* This should be a fairly painless migration, though there are a
couple of open questions related to handling legacy metadata and some

Thanks in advance and best regards,
