Subject: Release management problems


We're running into trouble with the recent "Team" support in GNOME, as
there's no backing NetworkManager release with the necessary team

It wouldn't be that much of a problem if Fedora didn't ship git
snapshots of the "next" NetworkManager version. Why ship git snapshots
in Fedora that are apparently not good enough for full releases? Could
upstream not do with testing on more than Fedora?

Sounds like a request for the Fedora NetworkManager package rather than upstream. As I understand it, the 
Fedora maintainers (while being NM upstream developers as well) want to keep up with the current upstream 
development and at the same time the current upstream development is so much ahead of the latest upstream 
release. That could improve when the 0.9.10 release is ready. You, if I understand correctly, would prefer to 
only include upstream NetworkManager final releases to Fedora just to help gnome-control-center developers 
keep their software compatible with the latest NM release.

I wonder whether such a rationale is a generally accepted one in Fedora. There's NetworkManager developer 
documentation for the released version to keep using only features existing in that release. I guess there 
are also non-Fedora Gnome developers who could easily do the pre-release gnome-control-center testing to 
ensure it can be compiled and used on a system with a released version of NetworkManager.
