Re: [PATCH] Allow NetworkManager-SSH plugin

Thanks for that guys.

Sounds like the best thing to do is to actually allow the installed VPN plugins to control that configuration. i.e. every VPN plugin can provide a DBUS file that will allow itself to communicate with NetworkManager. However with the one file - one policy type of configuration in dbus it'll be rather difficult.

On the other hand, try to count all the "famous" VPN protocols you know today, there aren't that many. I don't expect 500 plugins popping up tomorrow, so perhaps keeping it the way it is is not too bad and we can have our efforts invested in more important things.

But that's just my humble opinion.

I see no reply on the mailing list but I see your patch pushed to both master and nm-0-9-8 branches by Dan Williams.

I just wonder whether we actually need to maintain a whitelist for NetworkManager VPN plugins or whether the NetworkManager package could be made plugin-agnostic.
