Safe to remove yum?

Doing a 'dnf autoremove' after upgrading to F29, yum is one of the
packages it wants to remove. Is it safe to remove yum these days?

Yes. Things pretty much don't use yum anymore.

Unless you're building packages for EPEL locally using mock,

Or `mock --bootstrap-chroot`, which build in two stages. First install small root with DNF from e.g. F29 and then will
use this DNF to install the final chroot.

The scenario should be actually "First install small root with YUM from
e.g. F29 (and it should says EPEL actually) and then will use this YUM
to install the final chroot." and as far as I remember, this have newer
really worked:

RHEL and CentOS do not support DNF features like "Suggests:". Always
using dnf and dnf features is a good way to make packages that cannot
be compiled natively on RHEL or CentOS. Those van be excluded out of
the configs, but I find it safer to discover those when doing "mock"
builds.

I suspect that isn't quite true any more as dnf is a Technology Preview
with yum 4 in RHEL 7.6.
