Description srakitnican 2017-11-23 07:01:02 UTC
Since I am caching packages with Squid, I would like dnf to always use http mirrors over the https ones so that Squid can do its job.

There seems to be an option for metalink URL "&protocol=", but changing that makes all repository files not upgradeable (.rpmnew).

I would like to see a dnf.conf option to specify protocol that should be used.

Comment 1 Daniel Mach 2017-11-29 12:24:43 UTC
We recommend using rpmconf or python3-dnf-plugin-rpmconf to manage the .rpmnew files.
We'd like to avoid changing dnf just to avoid config file handling.
