Please consider unblocking planned upload of package mate-session-manager

This upload fixes an RC bug (#775189) and provides a minor fix for

+  * debian/patches:
+    + Add 0001_msmgnome-Allow-users-to-disable-one-or-both-compatib.patch.
+      Allow users to disable gnome-compat options (i.e. interaction with
+      gnome-keyring and/or gnome-smproxy). (Closes: #775189).

-> We received a complaint (#775189) about gnome-keyring force-fully
being started and clobbering environment variables (esp. those provided
by ssh-agent). In MATE it currently is not possible to deactivate

With this new upload, people can deactivate gnome-keyring startup inside
MATE sessions (plus: people have to make the gnome-keyring*.desktop files
in /etc/xdg/autostart inaccessible to normal users).

+  * debian/copyright:
+    + Add missing entry for file mate-session/gsm-systemd.c.

-> /me forgot to add the above file in debian/copyright. To make the
package policy compliant, I want to add this minor fix with the upcoming
