I doubt my programming skills are up to a patch for this.  Is this

it be added?

I did something, it's on review:

Is there a release schedule for the plugin?
Releases are done infrequently. Also, your distribution might not
rebase the package to a new upstream release, and it might not be
willing to backport new features in the current release of the
distribution. But that depends...

Given that I only need to use the service when taking my laptop out
the office I believe I can live with continuing to use openvpn
until the plugin supports the <extra-certs> option. I doubt that
tunnel is the only service using this option, so I suspect others
also encountering it and adding support to the plugin should be done
some point.
Maybe it's a pain point for many user. But I never saw a feature
request about it, and there is (AFAIK) no open RFE on
Be that as it may, it's easy to add.

Thank you for your effort on this issue.  My release of mint is based upon ubuntu xenial and that is where the openvpn plugin is packaged.  So if your work passes review and is released I would expect to see it when ubuntu adds it to their repository.  As this is an LTS release I would expect updates to be made, but I have no idea how quickly it would be done.

If for some reason ubuntu does not update their repository, do you also maintain a PPA for your releases?  I have added a few PPAs to my configuration to address products that are not updated as part of mint or ubuntu and could add another one if needed and available.

Thank you once again for your assistance in sorting this issue out.
