I really want to see networkd in Fedora by default. What are the
plans/timeframe for that? How does it play together with NM?
networkd doesn't do WLAN really (well, you can run it together with
wpa_supplicant, and configure both individually, but that's not
particularly nice. networkd currently also lacks a bus interface
(since it runs in early boot + initrd, where dbus-daemon is not
available currently), and that stalls on kdbus.
networkd as it is right now is great for servers, or the initrd, to
run inside containers or for a lot of the embedded usecases. It's not
suitable for the desktop usecase.
