NetworkManager needs to trim old Networks
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:20:12 EDT
Currently, NetworkManager will keep older networks around in gconf.
While not inherently harmful, it would be nice to have a mechanism for
cleaning them out. As a possibility, we could have a 'last used'
timestamp and remove ones after a certain time. Needs some thought.
Changing version to correct version bug was filed against. (Some were filed
against "test3" when they clearly are for FC3T2, a test for FC3.)
There seems to be a timestamp for each network connection in gconf.
Does NM use it to purge old connections ?
NM doesn't purge connections, but latest 0.7 (F8 and rawhide) and 0.6.6 (will be
pushed to F7) have connection editors that allow you to manually remove old
wireless networks if you so desire.
