A while back when Fedora 15 was in developement, I stumbled upon a project to facilitate firewall management : firewalld
. For notebook usecases, I think it could be very useful, and can't find out if it's actively developed or not. In git last activity is 10 months ago, however a rewrite to C (from python) was planned according to the wiki. Is it taking place somewhere, or is this project dead?
