Too easy! But still I don't understand why the option autoremove doesn't show up when commanding yum --help.

autoremove now appears in help and is explained in man page (seen in Fedora 22).

None, Fedora has no autoremove option but it does automatic remove the download or installed unused packages.

charles is wrong, you can use yum autoremove just fine.
