Topic: DNF warning: "Unknown configuration value: failovermethod=roundrobin"

When running DNF in verbose mode on Fedora 28 I get the following warnings:

Unknown configuration value: failovermethod=roundrobin in /etc/yum.repos.d/remi-glpi91.repo; 'roundrobin' value is not implemented
Unknown configuration value: failovermethod=roundrobin in /etc/yum.repos.d/remi-glpi92.repo; 'roundrobin' value is not implemented
Unknown configuration value: failovermethod=roundrobin in /etc/yum.repos.d/remi-glpi93.repo; 'roundrobin' value is not implemented
Unknown configuration value: failovermethod=roundrobin in /etc/yum.repos.d/remi-php73-test.repo; 'roundrobin' value is not implemented
Unknown configuration value: failovermethod=roundrobin in /etc/yum.repos.d/remi-php73.repo; 'roundrobin' value is not implemented
Unknown configuration value: failovermethod=roundrobin in /etc/yum.repos.d/remi-test.repo; 'roundrobin' value is not implemented
Unknown configuration value: failovermethod=roundrobin in /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo; 'roundrobin' value is not implemented

This config option isn't mentioned in `man dnf.conf` but it is in `man yum.conf`, which says:

failovermethod Either `roundrobin' or `priority'.

`roundrobin' randomly selects a URL out of the list of URLs to start with and proceeds through each of them as it encounters a failure  contacting the host.

`priority' starts from the first baseurl listed and reads through them sequentially.

failovermethod defaults to `roundrobin' if not specified.

So it seems like this option could be removed from the repo file with no impact on either Yum- or DNF-based distros.

Re: DNF warning: "Unknown configuration value: failovermethod=roundrobin"

Strangely I cannot reproduce...

Which dnf version ? with which plugins ?

Desktop: Fedora 27 x86_64 + rpmfusion + remi-test + remi-dev
Laptop:  Fedora 28 x86_64 + rpmfusion + remi (SCL only)
Hosting Server: CentOS 6.10 x86_64 with EPEL, remi, remi-php72 and remi-php72-test

Re: DNF warning: "Unknown configuration value: failovermethod=roundrobin"

I should read twice initial message... indeed in verbose mode...

Will respin a new remi-release package ASAP

I've installed this and can confirm that I no longer see the warnings in verbose mode - thanks for fixing this!
