Added a note for bridges configuration as some people tries to configure it with network manager... it is available at emmapeel:doc/8041-network-manager

the rest looks good!

Thanks for the suggestion. The UX for bridges is quite bad but the doc about it might even be worse. Currently we have some serious spaghettis between anonymous_internet/networkmanager, first_steps/startup_options/bridge_mode, first_steps/startup_options/network_configuration, and about/fingerprint. But yeah, until we solve this we should definitely point to bridges from networkmanager.

So I further improved on your patch with 3d6769c..7b53ecc. Can you review again, please?

Yeah I will eventually address this issue on another ticket.

I like that the bridges is now a <p> as it is not on the line of action, but still prevents people of trying to configure them after booting.

I wanted to build the wiki with your branch but I am havin issues with the repositories... from the mdwn looks cool though.

Ok, the repo stopped coughing and I can confirm the rendered version looks cool...

Maybe I would highlight a bit more the wired connection on the first list... shall I scratch a patch?
