But when there are people who want to care more and want take more
responsibility than this basic ones...  It's contraproductive for Debian
to keep that package for yourself and you should hand it over to
somebody who wants actively work on package.

Ryan obviously had more time to maintain gdm in past (see release
history of that package[1]), but 5 month between releases in very long
time, especially when 2.4.4.x gdm branch was released 13-Sep-2003 and
packaged version was released on 31-Dec-2003 and packaged at
2004-03-29.  Dates are from ftp.gnome.org[2]
