Bug Description

Currently, all wireless networks are added to the file /etc/wicd/wireless-settings.conf by the daemon.

It would be nice if per access point configs could be dropped into a directory instead of having to be added to a single file. This is especially useful for use in embedded systems where any package can drop things into that directory without modifying the config file created by another package (specifically the Debian/Ubuntu package managers).

I have created a patch to add this feature and it is available as the top commit in this Bzr repo:

    http://www.mega-nerd.com/Bzr/wicd-configmanager/

I have been running this (patch applied to wicd 1.6.1) on about 50 machines for over two weeks. Over the next 4 weeks, the number of machines using my patched version of wicd will grow to 500 plus.

Log file not necessary for this bug.

I'm considering this bug for my blueprint:

Maybe that blueprint should be called "re-think the configuration system" :)
