We (Jon McCann and myself, with some input from others) have been
working on a design for a new user management tool, with the goal of
coming up with something better than the current trias of
system-config-users, gnome-about-me and gdmsetup.
The design is not finalized, you can see the current state of affairs
(I really wanted to put this on the wiki, but all I could only get proxy
errors when trying to do so).
Comments are welcome. Please note the section on target audience and use
What's the difference actually supposed to be? Whatever it is certainly
some programs are not following the idea probably because the
distinction doesn't seem to be documented anywhere.
gconf-editor is in system tools
yumex and smart is in system tools
gpk-application is in administration
