Network Manager – Will ConnMan Replace NetworkManager on Desktop for Ubuntu 11.04?


In the 10.10 release, Unity on the netbook edition used ConnMan. As Unity is now moving to the desktop for 11.04, will that mean that ConnMan will replace NetworkManager on the default Ubuntu desktop as well?

No; the plan seems to be to enhance indicator-network / patch NM to use NM as a backend.

There's no blueprint yet, but the content of the Gobby document from UDS is here.
