well, I think system-wide configuration/management tools should be
included in a system-wide tool, such as GNOME System Tools. I think
gnome-network should just include user-wide tools (network clients and

All configuration stuff, either for single machines or for whole
networks, is better done in GST.

So that people know, that is what gnome-network includes right now:

* gnome-sync: a rsync frontend, which I was thinking on extending to
support other sync tools, like unison, for instance.
* gmailman: not sure what this is about, since it's done in Objective C,
so haven't been able to compile it. It is a "mailing list manager",
whatever that means.
* gnome-ppp: a modem dialer, which probably should be removed, as there
is already a modem dialer in GNOME System Tools.
* comlink: not sure what this is. Haven't ported yet.
* girc: a IRC client, probably to be removed also, since there are
already some good IRC clients for GNOME.
* gnews: a news reader
* gnome-talk: a talk client
* gnome-remote-shell: a new tool I added, to open shells on remote
hosts, via SSH or Telnet
