Uniform Proxy Settings

Hi list,

Whenever I try a new version of Fedora, the first problem I face is setting the proxy. It seems for almost every application, I have to specify proxy at a different place. We have this "System -> Preferences -> Internet and Network -> Network Proxy" app to specify proxy settings. But I wonder if there is some application which obeys these settings.


1. Yum (3.2.19-3.fc10) won't fetch proxy settings from above specified location. It has to be set via proxy option in yum.conf or http_proxy/ftp_proxy env variable.
   2. Codeina (0.10.1-9.fc10) will behave the same.
3. Revisor (2.1.0-1rc7.fc9) will not even obey http_proxy/ftp_proxy env variable settings. It has to be set in revisor.conf via proxy option.
   .... and the list continues.

Do we have any plans in near future to force a single location where proxy will be set and all other applications must read/write settings from/to that location? so that we can set different proxies (in case somebody needs) for different applications at that particular location.

Thank you,
