Fedora, and RedHat, apparently feel that NetworkManager is the way to go.
As I never use it, I'm not sure if they ever fixed the fact that it can't
handle bridges. To me (and I admit I'm an aging grouch), it's the sort of
thing that RH has a bad habit of doing, taking things that aren't
necessarily bad for something like Fedora, aimed at a single user laptop,
and putting it into their system which is often used as a server.

(One can argue about Fedora's use case, but judging from their forums, and
the various changes that have come over the years, I feel that most of
its developers are thinking of a single user laptop.)

Somewhere in the release notes, it states that system-config-network is
being removed in favor of some NetworkManager cli tool.
