Sorry for not replying for such a long time. I must have missed this bug in my mails entirely :(
I`ve set this question on top of tomorrow's kde-sig-meeting agenda: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/KDE/Meetings/2010-11-30

Oh right, the problem of the VPN plugins. They're split out not to drag in all the VPN stuff, but apparently that's rather counterproductive if they're really so small. Maybe we should just merge them into the main package as some people suggested? Or at least drag them onto the live CD by default. We can take that up in the meeting.
Unfortunately, the earliest release we can fix this in (in official ISOs) is Fedora 15, because Fedora does not do official respins of releases. So we cannot fix this for Fedora 13 or 14.
OK, at least it will be in F15 release.
