I don't get this. Both system-config-network and system-config-bind are in Fedora 15. I can sort of get why they would deprecate system-config-network in favor of NetworkManager (barely), but how are we to manage the DNS server? It is NOT trivial to create and manage DNS records with a text editor. For me Webmin is a little too bloated to install, just to manage bind. Is it time to for me (or the community) to create these useful tools?
