#937 duplicate Clean up gdm-config jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 13 years ago.


We no longer support old-GDM releases (Hardy is no longer supported for Desktop), so we should clean up gdm-config so we stop doing the foo-branding packages.

#564 fixed clean up licensing jdreed geofft

Reported by geofft, 14 years ago.

  • There are (at least) two versions of the MIT license in use in our packages: one along the lines of <mit-copyright.h>/<mit-sipb-copyright.h>, and one the X11/Expat license, which is what the world at large considers the MIT license. We should standardize on one, probably the latter, because in my reading the former ("Permission to use, copy, modify, and distribute this software and its documentation for any purpose and without fee is hereby granted...") implies that you can't make derivatives or sell them.
  • The names of people who own copyrights are often wrong. For instance, Tim Abbott and Anders Kaseorg are listed as owning the copyrights for debathena-printing-config's packaging, but they haven't ever committed to that package.
  • Binary packages that use DEB_TRANSFORM_FILES and therefore include modified versions of upstream files, and potentially all configuration packages, need to be licensed the same as the upstream package they configure, as derivative works.

For the record, the fact that sometimes code is copyright individuals and sometimes copyright MIT is intentional -- things by paid (IS&T) staff are owned by MIT, but things by (SIPB) volunteers are owned by themselves. It's possible we should consider assigning the copyright for everything to MIT, but there hasn't yet been a compelling reason.

#527 fixed Clean up new gdm's caching of dmrc files rbasch

Reported by rbasch, 14 years ago.


The new gdm in karmic tries to cache dmrc and face files in /var/cache/gdm/$USER/. At least for the dmrc file, this is copied from $HOME/.dmrc, if it exists (which it may not, as gdm apparently does not create it when using a default session), but the $USER subdirectory is created in any case. So we should:

1) Clean up the /var/cache/gdm/ subdirectories appropriately, at least on cluster machines.

2) Make sure we don't leave a "nocalls" default session setting in the cached dmrc, like we now do for $HOME/.dmrc.
