I didn't proof-read the kdm templates because I don't care about kdm,
I didn't have spare time then and I didn't know it was going to cause
bugs in all other display managers.  Please can shared templates be
announced in the subject line in future?

Looking back, I see only one comment that it was fine - so that's
enough to fix shared templates in stone?

Which is a "should" not a "must".  Please correct that.

I was on a high-speed train, disconnected from the internet at the
time of reading the email and doing the review.  I could have sent an
ITR but it would have arrived on-list at roughly the same time as the
RFR, so I decided that was pointless bureaucracy.
