With that in mind, here's a list of things that deserve especially close
At long last, NetworkManager is installed and enabled by default for all
new installs. It is *supposed* to play nice with the system
configuration set up by Anaconda and the old system-config-network tool.
I'd recommend that all testers install and enable NetworkManager if
possible. File bugs about network configuration problems (not honoring
static IP configurations, for instance) against "NetworkManager".
Fresh install of F9-Beta with static IP address. NetworkManagerDispatcher runs
on firstboot and overwrites the resolv.conf file. Also the static network
data from /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 is not being honoured. It
gets a 169.xx adddress.
If there's any other things that people think need closer attention..
now would be a good time to mention them.
