It would be nice if things could be set up such that kdebase-workspace-akonadi gets installed by default if both kdebase-workspace and akonadi are installed, but not if only one of them is installed. If RPM had a "Suggests" tag it would at least be possible to inform users that there is a related package available that they can install if they want to. Björn Persson
