I asked you *months* ago what sequence number you thought xdm should use,
and I got no reply.
Really? Then I have to apologize.
The amount of e-mail I get is getting so much out of hand that
I'm sometimes not able to read it all. And when unread mail gets
deeper and deeper into the folder, you know what happens ..
But yes, preferably xdm should be at S95 or so.
However after sarge I intend to propose doing away with sequence
numbers altogether and instead move to a dependency-based
solution. And since bootlogd is also really experimental and
turned off by default, I wouldn't worry about changing the
sequence number of xdm.
