wait, you want a public viewable repository, but you're not willing to let the world see the project ? Do you mean public available, but private ?

comment Automatic layout of manual network mapping
Just taken a look at yed. Its not bad and you can create the files by hand as its simlpe xml-ish, but the licence for it (and faq) specifically disallows its use as part of an automated script. This makes converting the file into something usable on the fly not possible.

comment Cannot increase MTU on gigabit network
Swings and roundabouts i guess. I only know of 3 home networks running at gigabit speeds. All use jumbo frames. (n.b: I didn't set those networks up, but mine also uses jumbo @ gigabit)

comment VNC connection via SSH proxy machine
On the machine which is being used to connect to the ssh machine. you basically connect to the ssh server like normal, but with these flags on the command, and it'll let you connect to vnc @ localhost, by forwarding the port through the tunnel you just made by logging into the ssh server.
