Test Day DNF 2.0

Why test DNF 2.0? DNF-2 is the upstream DNF version, the only version actively developed. Currently the upstream contains many user requested features, increased compatibility with yum and over 30 bug fixes. To DNF-1 back porting of patches from upstream is difficult and only critical security and usability fixes will be cherry-picked to Fedora.
