Hi, thanks for reporting and fixing this!

Would you mind creating a proper patch using git-format-patch and sending it over the mailing list with git-send-email?

Please tell me email address to send a patch.

I could not find it on the wiki pages.

We have the openvpn-devel mailing list. You need to subscribe to be able to send emails:

Also, I know the patch is quite trivial, but one or two lines in the commit message explaining why it does not work now would be good. Also, do you have any idea if it ever worked in the past?

Another thing: this is not necessarily needed, but if you could find and mention the commit that broke this feature it would be really appreciated!

Now that's an interesting find. And apologies for letting this slip through - it was broken by the big option handling patch before 2.4.0, and it seems nobody actually wanted to use that option since then.

Taking the ticket so someone has the formal job to make sure it gets merged. But please send to openvpn-devel anyway, makes things more smooth for us.
