That may worth to be mentionned in squeeze release-notes, and should be
mentionned in squeeze+1 release-notes.

« GDM 2.20 and 2.30

Since the rewrite has absolutely zero compatibility with previous
versions, it will not be upgraded in place. Therefore, while newly
installed systems will get GDM 2.30 by default for squeeze, those
upgrading from lenny will keep GDM 2.20. The 2.20 version will be
dropped after the squeeze release.

If you want to upgrade your GDM, simply run apt-get install gdm3. It
should work for simple setups, and there’s a hack that makes upgrades
work even when logged on X.

Everyone who has needs for advanced features (such as LTSP people)
should make sure GDM 2.30 suits their needs during the squeeze cycle,
since the old version will not be here anymore after. »
