[Pkg-net-snmp-devel] Bug#715486: Please seperate mysql dependancy for snmptrapd

Package: snmpd
Version: 5.7.2~dfsg-8
Severity: wishlist


I am running debian of a small box (raspberry pi). Since the
recent upgrade, the snmpd package depends on a mysql client

The mysql client library is not needed for the snmpd itself, just
for snmptrapd. Addionally, snmptrapd is used far less often than
snmpd, so splitting this into a separate package might make sense
under this aspect, too.

So please consider shipping a package with snmpd (without the
mysql dependency) and snmptrapd (which for me would be ok to
depend on snmpd package)
