If you think of a traditional OS install then yum will be common. If you
think of Fedora as a base for creating black box appliances, then yum may
well not be installed at all - whole appliance upgrades are done rather
than individual packages. Likewise if you deploy Fedora in 'stateless'
mode, you're not upgrading packages on individual machines you are instead
generating a new master image. So again yum will not be there.
