Now I adopted LXDM, and willing to maintain it in the future. lxdm
0.4.1-26 is the current git snapshot, and it works pretty well. The
commits in the recent days are fix the compatibility with
systemd-logind's session tracking feature, and fix autologin
functionality (thanks to dgod). If you found any problem with the
current package, please report it in our bug tracker.

But if there are still major problems come to light, then I won't
hesitate to move it into unsupported.
