I speculate many or most people disable firewalld. This was an explicit recommendation
during Virtualization Test Day. So it's not just the config tool that isn't
getting as much testing as it otherwise would. For the LiveCD, it needs to be a GUI
configurable, and work, because firewalld is enabled by default.
I am working with libvirt upstream to get firewalld support in libvirt.
There are patches for firewalld support in libvirt, but without
firewalld reload support. The dbus code is not working corrytly in
If reversion is going to occur back to iptables and its Firewall
tool, slipping that in a final RC seems risky. That combo hasn't been tested since
early alpha. And in effect neither firewall package is getting nearly as much testing
I feel that firewalld's updated man pages and GUI config tool need to appear by final
TC1, or reversion should occur.
The man pages and more documentation will be released in a new package
this week. firewall-config will not be finished before F-17 GOLD.
