[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#684714: lightdm: Please depend on lightdm-greeter

Package: lightdm
Version: 1.2.2-3
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

lightdm currently depends on "lightdm-gtk-greeter | lightdm-qt-greeter". As the
latter does not exist anymore, this means it unconditionally depends on the GTK
greeter. As I am currently preparing the KDE greeter for packaging [1], that
should not be the case. Both the GTK greeter and the future KDE greeter provide
the virtual "lightdm-greeter" package, so I think the dependency should
actually be "lightdm-gtk-greeter | lightdm-greeter".

Kind regards,
