Pushing Gentoo NetworkManager Plug-in to upstream NetworkManager

Two weeks ago, I contacted Dan Williams who is the author of NetworkManager. We are talking about pushing our plug-in to upstream NetworkManager. Dan is really a kind guy and willing to accept our code. He made a long fix-up list and I’ve started working on them this week.

These requests would not only help make the code format compatible with NM’s, but also improve the quality of our plug-in. Thank Dan for his comments.

I’ll make all the necessary modification and I’m sure you will see it soon :-).

    So, what does that mean for the Gentoo end-user? Just emerge 0.8.2 when it comes out and all will automagically work?

    /me is confused and reluctant to switch to NM because of that :\

      Now you just emerge networkmanager-0.8.1-r6, the plug-in could automatically work. Pushing to NM upstream doesn’t make any difference to end-user.
