Integrate Wi-Fi Protected Setup in NetworkManager

Registered by Bart Cerneels on 2010-04-06

Wi-Fi Protected Setup is a Wi-Fi Alliance standard to easily set up a secured wireless home network.
Support for WPS is missing in ubuntu and derivatives.
WPS is implemented in wpa_supplicant already [1] but support in NetworkManager and the rest of the stack (nm-applet and knetworkmanager) is still missing. Out-of-band methods (uncommon) need to be implemented in NM or it's GUI's completely.
