Mock isn't available on EL* either. It's in EPEL.
Therefore you will not be able to build rawhide packages on EL7-
standard mock configuration.
Can DNF be packaged for EL7- in EPEL and used that way?
I see several options to offer to user:
1) Discourage user from doing that by providing no hints how to workaround
2) Tell him that DNF is not available and he must run mock with "--yum"
option. And warn him that he may get different depsolving.
3) Tell him that DNF is not available and fall back automatically to yum and
warn him that he may get different depsolving.
Unless somebody will have better idea I would go with (2).
If DNF can't be packaged in EPEL, then I would agree option 2 seems to
be the best choice.
