> yum install kdebase-workspace-python-applet  

Yes, I know that :), but many users do not (because do not know which package they must install for this kind of plasmoids).

Could be possible to include this package into KDE Group or as Requires into kdebase-workspace's .spec file (in the future), so it will be automatically installed with other KDE base staff, or on some other way?
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2009-04-23 08:51:11 EDT
We can and should add it to KDE Group, sure.
Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2009-04-23 12:59:59 EDT
A Requires would be stupid, it'd defeat the whole point of making it a subpackage.
