  I've build some rpms of NM 0.7 with support for the olpc mesh device and some
  extra possibilities wrt. configuring the ip connection.

  See http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Network_manager_0.7#Testing_NM_0.7 for a
  description of how to test with it. Do note that there is no Sugar
  integration at this point, so installing these rpms will break your network
  configuration :)

  The major thing in NM 0.7 that's still missing is support for MPP mode. And
  ofcourse sugar integration (people working on this would be very much

  For those interested i've got a user git branch on dev.laptop.org[0] of which
  the master branch tracks NM svn and the olpc-patches branch contains the
  needed olpc patches. Do note that this branch is rebased from time to time
  and also i'll start pushing various parts upstream rsn, so the branch
  hopefully gets smaller over time :)

  Also the python demo tools can be found in a user git repo[1].
