GNOME Network

For ZeroConf integration, the plan is to have a set of classes, in libgnetwork,
which allow other applications to discover services, via MDNS, SLP, etc. We are
lucky enough to have already a MDNS implementation
(gmdns),
which works, and which we want to integrate in our libgnetwork (just waiting
on yakk’s approval to do so). Once we’ve got the library, the plan is to start
writing tools that use the discovery features, or integrate that in already
existing applications. One of those new tools is to have a set of links,
in the network:/// Nautilus view, that display links to the discovered servers
for many services (HTTP, FTP, etc), similar to XD2′s ‘Network Neighborhood’
link.
