The Fedora Server Product will ship the Cockpit Project as available by
default, providing an approachable tool for system management.
== Detailed Description ==
Cockpit is a server manager that makes it easy to administer your GNU/Linux
servers via a web browser.
* Easy to use
Cockpit is perfect for new sysadmins, allowing them to easily perform simple
tasks such as storage administration, inspecting journals and starting and
* No interference
Jumping between the terminal and the web tool is no problem. A service started
via Cockpit can be stopped via the terminal. Likewise, if an error occurs in
the terminal, it can be seen in the Cockpit journal interface.
You can monitor and administer several servers at the same time.
== Scope ==
Inclusion of Cockpit as part of the default (not necessarily minimal) install
set for Fedora Server
* Proposal owners:
** Support for a modular architecture
** Improved network management
* Other developers: N/A
* Release engineering: Inclusion of cockpit into comps.xml
* Policies and guidelines: N/A
Special Requests: Cockpit would like to request an additional 2-4 weeks on the
Fedora 21 schedule to ensure completion of the core functionality.
