Hi Joey,

SynrG on IRC made me aware of MATE not pulling in any display manager  
when installed via a MATE-flavoured livebuild.

As the MATE pkg-team doesn't want to attach a display manager to close  
to the mate meta packages (a desktop environment does not necessarily  
require a display manager to be usable -> e.g. when used via X2Go or  
VNC, nor does it require a local X11), we'd appreciate it if the  
display manager (preferably lightdm) could be pulled in via tasksel  

I hope the attached patch is ok. (Does tasksel allow  
"x-display-manager | lightdm" in Recommends: field?).
