[Pkg-kde-extras] Bug#669702: OpenSSL and Openconnect VPN in plasma networkmanagement

the openconnect vpn module of the plasma widget for networkmanagement links
against OpenSSL, which has some problematic licensing consequences . This
prevents the module from being enabled in Debian .
The only part of network manager directly linking with OpenSSL is that plugin
- I am by far not a licensing expert, but I hope this means that the rest of
the code, which just loads the plugin at runtime, does not need any
relicensing - after all, that code can't know which plugins will be loaded
According to the copyright headers and the git log, you are the main and
actually almost the only author of that plugin. Is that correct, and if yes,
would you be willing to add a license extension as stated in  to the files,
so they can be linked with OpenSSL?
