my name is Mike Gabriel <sunweaver at debian.org> and I'd like to ask a
few questions to the XFCE team.
(If you reply to this mail, please Cc: me as I am not yet subscribed. Thanks.)
As a member of X2Go upstream I am currently implementing several things:
o a session broker  that imitates Canonical's UCCS site 
o a series of patches against Canonical's remote-login-service  so that
in addition to RDP and ICA sessions remote-login-service also becomes
able to launch X2Go sessions (i.e. Linux Terminal Server support) 
o a server_type implementation for remote-login-service called
o a PAM module called libpam-x2go, provide PAM information by checking
credentials against an X2Go server (basically wrap around an attempt to
SSH login for now) 
With the above set of tools/patches it becomes possible to use the
remote login feature of LightDM as included from Ubuntu quantal on...
o ... independent from Canonical's UCCS site 
o ... for RDP, ICA and _X2Go_ (Linux) sessions
So, these are my questions:
1. Are there plans to package remote-login-service  for Debian?
2. If not, is the remote login feature in the Debian lightdm package
intact? Did someone think about that part of the code already?
(By looking at  my guess is that the remote login code is untouched)
3. Is the team basically open to my providing remote-login-service and
related packages within Debian?
