Name        : NetworkManager
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 0.7.996
Release     : 7.git20091113.fc12
URL         : http://www.gnome.org/projects/NetworkManager/
Summary     : Network connection manager and user applications
Description :
NetworkManager attempts to keep an active network connection available at all
times.  It is intended only for the desktop use-case, and is not intended for
usage on servers.   The point of NetworkManager is to make networking
configuration and setup as painless and automatic as possible.  If using DHCP,
NetworkManager is _intended_ to replace default routes, obtain IP addresses
from a DHCP server, and change nameservers whenever it sees fit.

Update Information:

This update provides enhancements for and fixes bugs in NetworkManager,
including for Bluetooth PAN, WiFi, and VPN connections.  It also provides
enhanced support for various Ericsson, Dell, Nokia, and Option mobile broadband
devices and for CDMA-based connections in general.
