Not really a fan of network manager, but I don't really deal with the headaches that come with wifi so often. Is nmcli more than just a config file parser these days?
NetworkManager would work quite well for us. The deps look a little insane though. I don't know why it would need libsoup and Gnome stuff.
Hm, that's something to look into. Would be nice if it could at least work without polkit if it is not installed (like systemd does).
If adding NM is the deemed The Right Thing To Do™ then fine, but I'd like to make sure that it's actually valuable. Last I looked, using nmcli meant handwriting config files which had no documented syntax.
Nope, they sorted this out now. You can use it to do stuff like list available network, and set up connections (just as in the gui clients).
I would say we keep things as-is for at least the February ISO image.
Very much agreed.
Absolutely. Just planting seeds ;-)
