Add debian/patches/71_gdm-man-customconf.patch: Fix gdm.1 manpage to point
to /etc/gdm/gdm.conf-custom. Thanks to "DonQuichote". (LP: #245166)

108. By Sebastien Bacher on 2008-10-09

* debian/patches/68_correct_xserver_location.patch:
  - new change to prefer the modern xserver location (lp: #266977)
* debian/patches/70_mandatory-relibtoolize.patch:
  - run autoconf update

107. By Sebastien Bacher on 2008-09-04

* New upstream version:
  - Improve gdm_final_cleanup so that the slave daemon exits after receiving
    a shutdown or reboot event, and after completing all cleanup.
    This further fixes bug #517526. which was causing GDM (lp: #249039)
    to crash on reboot or shutdown.
  - Fix broken check in configure for TCP wrappers. Fixes bug #548676.
  - Correct memory leak in SELinux code.
  - Use g_strdup when copying strings in gdmchooser to avoid a crash.
    See bug #544730.
  - Ignore ENXIO when processing ioctl since some distros, such as
    FreeBSD, yields ENXIO for non-IP/non-configured interfaces.
    Fixes bug #544790.
  - Prevent a negative value when processing SVG images in the
    gdmgreeter themes.
  - Add Kazakh language to locale.alias.
  - Translation updates

Change ubuntu-artwork Recommends: to ubuntu-gdm-themes | gdm-theme

105. By Michael Vogt on 2008-08-08

* debian/gdm.init:
  - make gdm.init honor the 'text' kernel commandline option and
    do not start gdm if that is given (LP: #256125)

[ Martin Pitt ]
* Add debian/patches/67_guest-account.patch: If a flexisession with user
  name ":guest" is requested (which is an impossible system user name), and
  guest session setup/teardown scripts are available in
  /usr/share/gdm/guest-session/ (shipped by separate gdm-guest-user
  package), run a guest session without requiring a password. This
  flexiserver command requires standard gdm authentication, and thus can
  only be run by users who are already logged into the machine.
  Guest sessions call /usr/share/gdm/guest-session/Xsession instead of
  /etc/gdm/Xsession, so that we can wrap AppArmor (or other MAC system)
  rules around it.

[ Andres Rodriguez ]
* debian/control.in: Depend on lsb >= 3.2-14, which has the
  status_of_proc() function.
* debian/gdm.init: Add the 'status' action (LP: #251375).

103. By Sebastien Bacher on 2008-07-14

* New upstream version
* debian/control.in:
  - suggests gdm-themes, xnest, xephyr rather than recommends those

102. By Robert Collins on 2008-06-18

debian/locale.conf: Add la_AU.UTF-8. (LP: #234101)

101. By Martin Pitt on 2008-05-17

debian/gdm.postinst: On upgrades, fix rc.d symlink priority from 13 to 30,
so that gdm starts after hal. Also fix the comparison operators (lt-nl
instead of lt) for the already existing cases. (LP: #227838)

100. By Sebastien Bacher on 2008-05-13

* New upstream version (lp: #229866):
  - Fix two related bugs that were causing GDM to crash regularly on exit.
    Refer to bug #517526.
  - Fix a third bug that was causing the GDM daemon to crash occasionally when
    using gdmsetup. This fix changes GDM so that when it receives an
    UPDATE_CONFIG command, it only updates the key specified rather than
    re-reading the entire configuration file. Fixes bug #517526.
  - Sync to avoid any XIO errors after session exits.
  - Fix so that the XDMCP configuration values are read from the configuration
    file when the XDMCP manager is started rather than initialized. It seems
    the related fixes implemented in 2.20.2 did not fully resolve this issue.
  - Fix bug that was causing GDM session desktop file marked as "Hidden=true"
    to show up in the Session dialog.
  - Fix gdmsetup bug that caused users to need to restart GDM in order for
    it to notice changes made in the "Server settings" dialog.
  - Fix gdmsetup so it does not save 24HourClock setting as a translated
    string, which was causing the configuration to get confused.
  - If the user's $HOME/.dmrc file does not exist, avoid calling gkeyfile
    functions. This avoids useless gkeyfile warning messages about the file
    being NULL. A previous fix in 2.20.1 minimized this problem by creating
    the file if it did not exist. However, that does not always work if the
    user's $HOME directory is not writable (e.g. LiveCD). So this fix avoids
    the warnings.
  - Add default OpenBSD Halt, Reboot and Suspend commands to the configure
  - Remove broken logic in the configure script that was trying to append
    ${prefix}/bin to the DefaultPath and RootPath. Please use the
    --with-post-path configure option if you want to add custom directories
    to the end of DefaultPath and RootPath.
  - Fix the way the Xsession script is built so that distros can more easily
    add their own custom logic to the Xsession script. Some Solaris specific
    code was moved to the Xsession.solaris file so that other distros do not
    get affected by this code. Remove logic to normalize LC_ variables since
    this was causing problems for some users. Refer to bug #509141
* debian/patches/11_powermanagement.patch,
  - updated for the new version
* debian/Xsession:
  - set the USERXSESSIONRC environment variable (lp: #229199)
