[RFC 0/2] Service provisioning method in Manager API

Hi,

A dbus API is needed to provide UI support for 802.1X network
provisioning. This proposal adds a method in Manager API that
can be used to provide a service configuration as a single string
that follows the format described in doc/config-format.txt.

Configuration string is passed inside a dictionary to provide some
flexibility. For example alternative syntaxes can be introduced
later.

Unlike manager.ConnectService(), ProvisionService() will not try
to synchronously connect the service after creation, but instead
sets it as a favorite, to be auto-connected later if necessary.

See the previous discussion about this topic at:
