Dealer left hose disconnected. How bad is this?

In February Mrs. Lee had her cracked oil pan replaced under warranty at the local dealer. I haven't opened the hood since and went to do an oil change today. This is what I found.



I'm assuming it can't be too bad, since she's put a lot of miles on it since then without issue. But what is this hose for? It was totally dry and the tech obviously either forgot to reconnect it or didn't press it on hard enough, as it took some muscle for the clips to engage.

i think its just a breather tube or part of the pcv system since it goes from intake tube to valve cover. getting those to clip back in fully is a pain sometimes.
