Hi Ilia,

the openconnect vpn module of the plasma widget for networkmanagement links 
against OpenSSL, which has some problematic licensing consequences [1]. This 
prevents the module from being enabled in Debian [2].
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 [1] to the files, 
so they can be linked with OpenSSL?

Kind regards,
