It's very bad because people can't connect to internet in live-cd mode and after install to hard drive.

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

@Rex, Kevin: I will not be able to attend to tommorrow's meeting. I've done a test spin with these packages and the increased size is quite minimal - only 1M. The package diff is:

> NetworkManager-openvpn
> NetworkManager-pptp
> NetworkManager-vpnc
> openvpn
> pkcs11-helper
> pptp
> vpnc
> vpnc-script

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.
Comment 3 Vasiliy Glazov 2010-11-29 16:13:21 EST
OK, at least it will be in F15 release.

Plugins renamed to

They are added as optional to kde-desktop in comps-f15.
Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2010-11-30 09:40:15 EST
As discussed and agreed on in today's KDE SIG Meeting, I changed them from optional to default:

Make kde-plasma-networkmanagement-openvpn, kde-plasma-networkmanagement-pptp and kde-plasma-networkmanagement-vpnc default for kde-desktop in comps-f15 (#601056).
