NetworkManager works fine here, no complainants except that it requires a lot
of Gnome stuff. This is why I was looking for alternatives for my upcoming LXDE
spin. I know many LXDE users use it, so I gave it a try.

First I was very disappointed, because I could not get it to work with WPA/WPA2
encryption. Others confirmed that there were issues and they had to connect
several times until it worked. But since 1.5.8 it seems these problems have
been solved. I'm using 1.5.9 now for a nearly three weeks and it has always
worked flawlessly. The only issue is that it does not work with SELinux
currently.

I'm going to review this package when Rangeen gives us an updated spec. I
really like to see this in Fedora ASAP, but first we need to fix
selinux-policy-targeted.
