Care to clarify that statement as in how is this more relevant to Fedora
as opposed to any other downstreams that package and ship NM and any
other project for that matter.
It is as relevant to Fedora as to any other distribution.

And openlmi and cockpit are considered being mature?
Irrelevant strawman, nobody is proposing to use openlmi or cockpit to
replace working, mature, available software.
Please stick to valid arguments or avoid trolling (yes I said trolling,
this last paragraph clearly is, as it draws in stuff that has nothing to
do with the conversation at hand).
