Package: korganizer
Version: 4:3.1.2-1

The korganizer package currently has a dependency on the kalarm package. The
korganizer application does not need to have the kalarm application
installed in order to run - it only needs the kalarmd program which is part
of the kalarm package. It would be better to split the kalarm package into
two: kalarm and kalarmd, with both kalarm and korganizer depending on
kalarmd. korganizer would then not depend on kalarm.

kalarmd is the alarm monitoring daemon which is used by both the kalarm and
korganizer applications. It is not specific to either application, despite
its name suggesting that it belongs to kalarm. Since it is a requirement for
both kalarm and korganizer but belongs to neither, it would be better if it
was put in a separate package required by both. That would remove the
requirement to install kalarm in order to run korganizer, which is totally

As korganizer have its own alarm daemon and korganizer do not depend on kalarm 
anymore, I am closing this 2 1/2 years old bug report.
