This seems incorrect, given Shaun's work on Plasma - and after the discussion in this thread 
this should be known by now.

Wouldn't it be an idea to get manpower on KDM? Maybe a better idea than to invest time in 

So my suggestion: let's stop discussing about lightDM and evaluate what we have and what we 
need. Let's do it properly and honestly. Then let's look what can be done in KDM and how we 
can shuffle resources there. And only iff that does not work, let's discuss a different DM. And 
also let's think about the future. Developing a new DM for X when we are about to switch to 
Wayland makes me want to move my palm against my head ;-)

To me this whole issue was unknown until the thread was started and that most likely means 
that it has not been raised on the appropriate mailinglists. I don't know if it has been raised 
towards Ossi, but if he does not have the time there is always the option to bring the discussion 
to the plasma mailing list (where you can mostly find all Workspace interested developers) or on 
this list here. Though as it is workspace related, Plasma should be the first choice.
