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 
stopping services.

* 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.

* Multi-server
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.
