kdebase: depends on xorg-x11-xdm and lm_sensors

Description of problem:
When installing kdebase via yum, the following packages get pulled in:
Obviously kdelibs is correct, but requiring xdm and lm_sensors doesn't
make much sense to me - I haven't seen another distro do that. Can
they be suggested, rather than depended on?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
er, sadly, rpm doesn't have suggests... this report might be futile.
xorg-x11-xdm is because kdm requires some files from there, IIRC.
It requires libsensors.so.3, ergo, lm_sensors. (The package require:
is probably superfluous with the library require:, though)
xorg-x11-xdm just include the config files which KDM/XDM share them.
And it's our intention. You haven't seen another distro do that,
because they add the config files in kdebase.
yes, the "require: lm_sensors" is superfluous and should be removed.
