Apparently it is still not clear to you: NM by *default* does not export
any wireless connections from /e/n/i to *any* user by the simple fact
that managed=false by *default*.

So my inital point still stands.

In your first paragraph you write "I hope this won't become too much of
a rant"
What follows is a lot of misconceptions and biased views and you
conclude with "Will we continue to live with the current disease?".

I won't bother following up as I'm really tired of all this BS on
debian-devel regarding NM lately. Sorry.
My guess is, that this will be another of those pointless NM bashing
threads, where nothing useful comes out of it. Actually I'm not sure
what the point of this thread is, but it definitely managed to piss me
off, the maintainer of network-manager, and I'm not going to further


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
