 Serious question: does anyone know if it requires Canonical's copyright 
 assignment to contribute to lightDM? If yes we can stop any further 
 discussion right here IMHO.

 There are of course more issues to think about when considering using 
 something in our workspace that's developed by Canonical. What about we 
 need changes Canonical does not like for what reason ever? Who of us can 
 work with launchpad and bazaar? It's not the environment we are used to 
 work with (same true for GNOME devs who want to participate in 
 development). Personal opinion: if Canonical wants other to use it as 
 real cross-desktop, the first step should be move the code into 
 freedesktop's git repository.
