Description Thomas Haller 2016-05-10 17:24:22 UTC
Currently, we have a package "NetworkManager-config-routing-rules" which provides /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/10-ifcfg-rh-routes.sh .

The name of this package is not nice, because it contains no configuration file.

An alternative would be to merge the script into NetworkManager package.

Pro/contra for having a separate package:

  + users who don't have route-files (the majority!), don't pay for
    the overhead to invoke the dispatcher script. Although we have now 
    "nowait", there is still an overhead. NM even optimizes for the 
    case where there are no pre-up scripts -- if we always install 
    such a script, the optimization becomes useless
  + without a separate package, the user has no way to disable
    10-ifcfg-rh-routes.sh to avoid the overhead. Otherwise, he
    can simply remove NetworkManager-config-routing-rules package.

  - users who need support for policy routing, need to install the
    package explicitly. Which is non-obvious:
    See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1160013#c44

  - yet another NetworkManager-* package...

I propose to keep the package, but rename it to NetworkManager-dispatcher-routing-rules
