Re: Wireguard Plugin for NM

Hi Thomas,

Upstream WireGuard here.

I still think, it would be great to have wireguard support in
NetworkManager not via a VPN plugin. But that is for another day.

stuff now, so it may indeed be best to roll it yourself.

I've been suggesting to Max that he makes his plugin talk to the

wg-quick has numerous problems and so the current plugin shouldn't be
used as is. But hopefully it'll get there.

Are you interested in working on real non-plugin NetworkManager
integration? If so, maybe find me on freenode (I'm zx2c4), and we can
