Hi Dan,

sorry for the late reply.

Please see the attached patches against NetworkManager-0.6 and

The first one removes all traces of Gnome dependencies from
NetworkManager, which is a good thing imho.

The second patch moves the nm-vpn-properties files (together with the
needed changes for, po/ etc.) to

Both packages still pass make distcheck and with a bit of luck also
apply against the NetworkManager and network-manager-applet trunk.

The only issue now is with nm-vpn-ui-interface.h, which is now in
network-manager-applet. So if you want to build the vpn plugins with
Gnome support, you have to install network-manager-gnome to get the
header. But in a way, this also makes sense and is consistent.

I really hope you consider this patches.
