Feature Name

Matahari based Fedora Management and Configuration Infrastructure (FMCI).


The goal of FMCI is to build a high level management and configuration interface on top of low level system ones. This low level interface is covered mostly by Matahari project. We are going to provide help to this project, so we can share as much code as possible. FMCI aims on local systems (DBus and PolicyKit), on the contrary Matahari on remote systems (QMF) usually hosted in virtualized environments (cloud). But on this level - there's quite a big overlap.

On top of high level Fedora interfaces we'd like to see user interfaces - probably both GUI and TUI, even some CLI tools would be very nice. This interfaces should be reusable by other tools too.

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.
