lightdm-config should be able display a MOTD on the login screen

Reported by: jdreed Owned by: jdreed
Priority: normal Milestone: Precise Release
Component: -- Keywords:
Cc: Fixed in version: debathena-lightdm-config 1.4
Upstream bug: #559

Description

We should package yet another gdm-config applet to display the contents of a file on the login screen, if that file exists. This would, for example, allow us to ship that file on Jaunty which informs users that they should upgrade their machines.

We could also possibly source a second, sysadmin-controlled file, to emulate the old motd2 functionality from xlogin.
