If you upgrade from F19 to F20 dnf will not be installed, so I see no harm in removing it from F20.

yum is the main tool to use, dnf is installed to be tested.

As far as I know yum cannot be removed. And dnf uses yum configuration files in addition to its own, at least when I enabled updates-testing for yum, it was made active for dnf as well.

Network Manager won't let me do that, and the command-line tools I used back in the older versions of Fedora don't seem to exist any more.

Any idea why yum doesn't show by default from what mirror it is downloading from?
