Bug Description

Package: nm-tray
Version: 0.4.1-0ubuntu1

Package nm-tray depends on libkf5networkmanagerqt-dev. I found this quite unusual, as -dev packages are typically required to build stuff, not to use it.

The Debian version does not have this dependency.

The applet works even if I force-purge libkf5networkmanagerqt-dev.

I found no mention of this in the changelog or other documentation, so I believe the dependency is an error.
