I want to thank you for that wonderful gift! A long wanted feature :)
I'll test the package and give feed back.
Is it fine to write bug reports here or else?
I tested initial package v.4.5.0-*rc.. but had some problems with
strongswan-applet ( after reboot, was blocking normal load and work of
hildon-desktop, only way to uninstall it was to start terminal with hw
keyboard and deinstall strongswan-applet, and reboot ) still ipsec was
working fine, but all attempt to establish connection failed. I did not
have time to dig in to the problem, but will upload now the new package
and test again...
