NetworkMgr does two things (that I would like to be separated in two different packages, if possible)
a) configure the device, adding the required info to /etc/rc.conf
b) bring up the device, scan the wireless sky and prompt for a user selection, after that it write /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
I am looking for your editorial critique to make the GhostBSD wiki better for a brand new noob user. I feel that the easier to setup and use, the more potential users stay around with GhostBSD.
You are doing good, Thanks!. The only critique if your really want one, is: try to be more concise, people hate reading long pages :D

About NetworkMgr, operator was and I did replace operator by doas, I am updating the GhostBSD ports to install the new version. On the hold version if operator is not installed the network manager will not work.

Now about NetworkMgr and NetcardMgr they will be split in 2 package in the future, it always ad been my plan, but I did never finish netcardmgr, it only configure card automatically for the moment.
