I was having a think about the Network preflet today...
I'm not 100% sure "Network Services" belong there.
Long term, if we get non-network related services launched from the
service kit, are we going to put them in the network preflet?
The service kit? You mean the launch_daemon? :-)
Does it make sense to remove the network services from the network preflet
and look into creating some new "System Services" preflet?
I don't think so, but it's not a simple topic.
Generally, I think having the network services in the network
preferences make a lot of sense. They don't need to be in one list as
they are right now, but I think it was even you who started the app this
way? I just didn't change that when I reworked it.
Apart from that, either a separate tab, or a network specific "Remote
access" preferences app would make sense. I would not mix internal
services with network services in one preferences application, however.
Long term, internally, the launch_daemon should take over launching the
network services, too. But from a user's point of view, enabling SSH is
something very different from launching Clipdinger at startup.
