https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/vile/blob/master/f/vile.spec provides
/usr/bin/vile.

Yes, I checked
https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/nvi/blob/master/f/nvi.spec and it
provides /usr/bin/nvi, not .../vi.

(I was unable to find a web-based equivalent of Debian's or Ubuntu's
package search for Fedora.)

Not at the above web site.  And there was Stevie, vim's ancestor.
That's not there either.
