I'm a KDE, a NetworkManager and an OpenVPN user and I noticed that the package networkmanager-openvpn depends on gtk3 and libgnomekeyring (which I don't use at all).

I made a little patch to this package. If it doesn't break anything, is it possible to apply it ?

kde uses the same interface provided from libgnome-keyring to store securely the passwords in your kde wallet.

do you really want to remove this important feature just because there is as dependency a package that has gnome in the name?

It seems to work here with my patch, but I can't test all the posibilities.

That's why I asked « **If it doesn't break anything**, is it possible to apply it ? ».
