NetworkManager-gnome is dead, having been replaced by both
network-manager-applet and nm-connection-editor, among others. At
this

point, the Shell is functional enough that we don't need
network-manager-applet anymore for GNOME desktops. But we still
need

nm-connection-editor.


We'll need it until we can get rid of fallback


As things stand you need it for longer than that. The 'Network' part of
control-center actually runs nm-connection-editor to configure certain
types of connections, like VPNs. See
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=849268 .
