Support firewalld


For Fedora 17, system-config-firewall is being replaced by firewalld, which does everything dynamically.


  • Name: TBD

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 17
  • Last updated: September 21, 2011
  • Percentage of completion: 0%

Detailed Description

kickstart, at least, will need to be changed to support the new firewalld commands. We don't yet know what those will look like. However, firewalld will have backward compatibility to some degree. For the rest, we can either map the old commands to the new ones in pykickstart or have some sort of migration tool.

We may also want to add a personalization spoke to do firewall configuration.
