Description wjn 2015-11-03 10:37:21 UTC
nm-applet is in the "RequiredComponents" of
( See )

 But users who prefer USE="-networkmanager" do not use nm-applet in Cinnamon.

 Indeed, this inconsistency is harmless.
Because cinnamon-control-center's ebuilds has nm-applet dependency,
there is nm-applet in the system.
 But the users don't want to run nm-applet. 
Also, most of them don't run NetworkManager, so nm-applet is needless.

 (And, if someone changes cinnamon-control-center to add IUSE="-networkmanager"
and drop networkmanager and nm-applet deps,
this will become a harm.)

Reproducible: Always

A proposed ebuild for this already exists on #553946.
