Re: starting Fedora Server SIG

What typical server tasks aren't possible without NM? Will it do vlan trunk management making it possible to individually restrict users, applications, or virtual machines to specific vlans? Will it do dynamic multicast routing? If it offers new features instead of just a different way of configuring that things already possible the change might make sense.

Lots of things in a modern system are far removed from the stuff a unix
sysadmin has traditionally dealt with.  That doesn't make it necessarily
"bad".  And as Seth pointed out, this "all new is bad" or "all new is
good" dichotomy is a part of the problem

But if a system claiming to be new/better can't provide more or less exact emulation of the system it wants to replace, it probably really isn't better.
