NetworkManager Health Check

Registered by Jason Warner on 2012-04-25

Not just for Desktop, but I'm planning to have another "NetworkManager
health check" session, see if there are things we can take out of how
Precise went. Someone already tried to schedule a session for this,
though it's not set in stone what we'll be discussing exactly. Perhaps
making sure we support some newish wireless features can belong in
there: specifically, I mean WPS, WiFi Direct, LTE, WiMAX.

Still networking-related for the desktop, I think we should discuss
firewalls and proxy again. Is there more work to be done for a better
integration of this? How can we get it to work properly? etc.

Whiteboard

Not sure if I'll be able to make it to this one, but can we discuss getting the captive portal support in NetworkManager wired to http://start.ubuntu.com/connectivity-check.html? This would stop us from throwing error reports (http://wiki.ubuntu.com/ErrorTracker) at such pages. - ev

** Please see https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/foundations-q-networking that is where we will discuss NetworkManager for Q, there is no point in having two sessions for it **
