improve state column clarity in network device tables #1633
Thanks to Forum members Karney_Chen and @magicalyak in the following forum thread for highlighting this issue. In network device tables a 'State' column reports device state codes: these can be misinterpreted as network device speeds due to a common state code (connected) being 100, which is also a well known ethernet speed. However this column is parsed from nmcli's GENERAL.STATE output and is simply a status code.
Linking to issue #1630 where the source of this columns contents was established.
Forum thread associated with this and the above referenced issue:
I propose that we change the network device table header from "State" to "Status code" there by clarifying the meaning of the codes there in.
