yup, http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/NetworkManager

there could be a problem:
sugar-0.84 uses NM-0.7's interface but NM-0.7 requires dbus-1.1,
sugar repo has dbus-1.1 but uses it only for session bus within sugar session

Don't know how it could affect stability of the whole system if
system bus will be dbus-1.1 and clients(non-sugar, since sugar's components
were built against dbus-1.1) will use dbus-1.0 clients

sugar uses NM only in RO manner(to collect info about IP, or so)
