Description:
There are several features in NetworkManager, I wanna focus one or two
* VPN autoconnect (?) ( bgo #349151
(https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=349151) , bgo #560471
(https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=560471) )
* Interface bonding support ( bgo #540995
(https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=540995) ) 
* Bridge interface support ( bgo #546197
(https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=546197) )
* Local caching nameserver support
* PPPoE over WiFi (http://live.gnome.org/WiFi) support ( bgo #559134
(https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=559134) )
* Connection time and traffic tracking ( bgo #601372
(https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=601372) )
* VPN connections in the top-level applet menu
First I wanna hack the VPN autoconnect for NetworkManager.

I'd love to see the Bridge interface support because of kvm and xen,
but largely kvm.

#2: Andreas Jaeger (a_jaeger) (2010-11-04 14:52:42)
Please get them into upstream networkmanager and we can then do an
update of that for 11.4. I mark it as reject since we will take what
comes from upstream.

+ I added the Hackweek VI patten just as an proposal - hope I was allowed
+ to do so.. I think in the wireless forum on
+ http://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/wireless/
(http://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/wireless/)
+ and other sub-fora are probably many threads related to the
+ networkmanager or the knetworkmanager (even if mostly their about
+ driver issues), like: - VPN Connection PPTP
(http://forums.opensuse.org/forums/english/get-technical-help-here/network-internet/451885-vpn-connection-pptp.html)
+ - Tag:PPPoE (http://forums.opensuse.org/tags/pppoe.html)
