Why is this assigned in "installation-reports"

From, what I understand, your problem happened during an etch->lenny
upgrade and pertains to the gdm package, isn't it?

It would be good to have more info about the way your upgraded as,
apparently, the gdm package was installed before the upgrade and it
"disappeared" after the upgrade.

I think that gdm maintainers will need more information in order to
understand why the package disappeared.
