Fedora.next: I would like working configurations

dhcpd is just an (maybe bad) example.

But even dhcpd needs a lot of work. I need to configure ranges, options 
(which could like gateqway and dns partly automagically gathered from 
the exsting network configuration), ... binding dhcpd to bind to enable 
dynamic updates, ...

and double this stuff for IPv4 and IPv6.

I used this only as an example to show that nearly all daemons are not 

cups and apache are not sharing user-groups with samba and nagios, ...

Integration of services is often possible, but not done when doing a 
fresh Fedora installation.

What I would like is more integration to produce a working "server". If 
I create a user group, it should be known in all installed services.

This might not be restricted to servers: all audio-components are there 
to do some professional work: jack, pulseuaudio, alsa, Audacity, 
plugins, ... but I have to fiddle them together myself.
