Description Jan Niklas Hasse 2017-11-28 16:10:18 UTC
When switching between apt, pacman and dnf, it always bothers me that I have to type "y" for dnf because the default is N. Of course I can add "defaultyes=True" to dnf.conf, but then I'm always cancelling prompts in newly set up Fedora instances (e.g. Docker) by mistake. I was wondering what you think about changing the default value.

Comment 1 Daniel Mach 2017-11-29 12:31:23 UTC
I'm sorry, but we cannot change expected behavior.

Comment 2 Jan Niklas Hasse 2017-11-29 12:35:33 UTC
Since most other package managers (e. g. apt, pacman, zypper) have yes as a default, isn't *that* the expected behavior?
