* SECURITY UPDATE: race condition allowing privilege escalation
  - debian/patches/41_CVE-2011-0727.patch: fix
    daemon/gdm-session-worker.c to copy files as session user rather
    than root followed by a subsequent chown. (LP: #746053)
  - CVE-2011-0727

237. By Andy Whitcroft on 2011-03-18

Make splash dependant on either a graphics device appearing or

236. By Sebastien Bacher on 2011-03-16

debian/gdm.upstart: revert recent update it has issues and break gdm on
quite some configurations (lp: #735805)

235. By Sebastien Bacher on 2011-03-15

* debian/patches/01git_xdmcp_ipv6.patch:
  - git commit to fix xdmcp issue when ipv6 is used

[ Martin Pitt ]
* Add 00git_passwordless_login_crash.patch: Disable the login button in
  MODE_AUTHENTICATION if no query is pending. This avoids a crash when
  having passwordless logins. Original patch from Michael Braun, slightly
  changed for upstream git head, backported to 2.32. (LP: #724205)

[ James Hunt ]
* debian/gdm.upstart: gdm will now restart as expected if a user
  runs "telinit 2" from single-user mode (LP: #436936).

234. By Gunnar Hjalmarsson on 2011-02-23

* debian/patches/36_language_environment_settings.patch:
  - Set LC_MESSAGES explicitly only if the value does not equal
    $LANG, to prevent that side effects when connecting to other
    computers via ssh appear unnecessarily.

233. By Evan on 2011-02-14

[ Gunnar Hjalmarsson ]
* debian/patches/36_language_environment_settings.patch:
  - Use locale names with '.UTF-8' instead of '.utf8' when setting
    the LC_MESSAGES environment variable (LP: #666565).
* debian/patches/40_one_lang_option_per_translation.patch:
  - Modification of /usr/share/gdm/language-options so an absent
    translation directory won't cause it to exit.

232. By Gunnar Hjalmarsson on 2011-02-10

[ Gunnar Hjalmarsson ]
* debian/patches/40_one_lang_option_per_translation.patch:
  - The option list in the language chooser changed so the items
    represent available translations instead of locales
    (LP: #693337).
  - setlocale() validation removed (not applicable).
  - Show locale variants in the list of language options
    (LP: #408474).
* debian/patches/36_language_environment_settings.patch:
  - Skip the encoding part in the dmrc "Language" value. It's not
    a locale name, so let's not give the impression it is.
  - Take main country code into account when generating
    a locale name for LC_MESSAGES.

[ Kees Cook ]
* Restore 24_respect_system_minuid.patch: upstream does not handle
  reading login.defs yet (LP: #708911).

231. By Sebastien Bacher on 2011-01-25

* Backported some changes from Debian
* debian/patches/39_grep_path.patch:
  - Don’t hardcode grep to a wrong location.
* debian/gdm.postrm:
  - correctly deal with uninstalls while gdm is still running (lp: #613150)

230. By Martin Pitt on 2011-01-24

[ Martin Pitt ]
* Add 38_user_chooser_focus.patch: Correctly give focus to the user chooser
  on startup. Patch by Vincent Untz, merci! (LP: #687440)

[ James Hunt ]
* debian/gdm.upstart: Remove starting-dm event (which was missed from a
  previous commit) and add login-session-start and desktop-session-start
  events (LP: #706842).

229. By Sebastien Bacher on 2011-01-19

* debian/control.in:
  - updated the gtk requirement to the version having the new api required

[ Gunnar Hjalmarsson ]
* debian/patches/36_language_environment_settings.patch:
  - grep() calls replaced for efficiency purposes
  - ability to deal with @variants in locale names
  - attempt to set the language fields in /var/cache/gdm/$USER/dmrc at
    first login after upgrade from GDM version pre 2.32.0-0ubuntu2

[ Cody Russell ]
* debian/patches/37_disable_resize_grip.patch:
  - disable the grips on the gdm screen (lp: #704018)
