[Pkg-lxde-maintainers] Bug#865043: Please drop Build-Depends on deprecated libck-connector-dev

Source: lxdm
Version: 0.5.3-2
Severity: normal
Tags: patch


ConsoleKit is dead upstream since almost 4 years [1] and unmaintained in
Debian [2]. With logind a much better, well maintained alternative exists.
I would thus like to remove ConsoleKit from the archive.
lxdm is the only remaining package which declares a Build-Depends on
libck-connector-dev. Please consider dropping that Build-Depends in your
next upload. Patch for that is attached.

Thanks for considering,
