If you discover a bug, you might be asked to raise your logging level in NetworkManager.conf or with nmcli so that we could get a trace of what went wrong.
Update your machine
If you're running Fedora 23, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager. If you want to try Rawhide, see the instructions on the Rawhide page on the various ways in which you can install or update to Rawhide. Or:
You're encouraged to test whichever setups you're generally using and let us know how well does the new NetworkManager works for you.
Here's some existing test plans that may help you with deciding what to test:
If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the component NetworkManager, or [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Fedora&version=23&component=network-manager-applet network-manager-applet for bugs in the applet or connection editor itself. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from the first line as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
