That should be it. Is it working for you?

That's temporary breakage after the merge and srcdir reorg. I'll take care of it.

Check out:

python setup.py --help
python setup.py --help-commands
python setup.py install --help

python setup.py rpm

Probably nothing that will affect networking bits. The only last chunk we
should really do is porting from gconf to gsettings which should be isolated.

However it would help if you start sending patches now, so I can apply some
while you keep working.

Yeah, don't worry about the TUI. Just patching things to not crash is fine.

Screenshots would be easier to understand here.

Yeah that's how we generally do things with VM hardware, so that's fine with me.
