Description of problem:
Config file directive "redirect-gateway" doesn't work because of an upstream package bug. Looking at the changelog, it's fixed in the next beta release.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit openvpn's config file, add "redirect-gateway" option there
2. service start openvpn
3. less /var/log/messages
4. Observe text "NOTE: unable to redirect default gateway -- Cannot read current default gateway from system"
Actual Results: Error message displayed in syslog.
Default gateway is left unchanged on the system after the VPN is brought up.
Expected Results: Default gateway should be set to the gateway value pushed by the VPN server
openvpn upstream changelog indicates it's already fixed in the next beta:

introduced in 2.0.4, which would cause redirect-gateway
on Linux clients to fail.

Not trying to bug you though.
The build failed due to dependency breakage in rawhide. I just requeued the
build. Hopefully it will go well this time.
