Dan Walsh has not written anything related to Debian.

Thanks, this is a good thing to have.

These are either the same versions or older versions than those which are 
currently in unstable.  Are you compiling for stable or unstable?  If 
compiling for stable then it would be best to make sure you have the latest 
versions, if for unstable then it would be best to skip these altogether as I 
am managing them.

This is not a good idea.  When someone files a bug report we won't know who's 
version they have a problem with.

Packaging kdm is good, but again a different version number is needed to avoid 
confusion (put "lkcl" somewhere in the version field so people will know 
where it came from).

The next thing to do is to get things tested more so that they can be accepted 
into the main packages.
