Feature Name

Fedora Management and Configuration Infrastructure (FMCI).


The current Fedora management and configuration tools state is not very good in comparison with other distributions. Fedora includes several system configuration tools (system-config-*) - .

This should change with FMCI.

This effort includes:

  • consistent high level management and configuration interface exposed over system message bus (DBus),
  • proper documentation of existing interfaces exposed over system message bus,
  • and user interfaces using this/these interface(s).

Current status:

  • Gathering informations/data from the community.

Detailed Description



GUI system configuration tools are affected by this change - we should port them to the new DBus/Polkit system configuration architecture. But the old GUI tools should work together with the new stack.

How To Test

Unit tests are part of the project.

User Experience



No dependencies - independent project.

Contingency Plan

This is new project - there's no contingency plan needed.
