Re: Session Management Proposal

Hi George,

A common thing would be nice, but really so far there are 2 different
implementations GDM (only in the CVS version though) and KDM and so I don't
think it's a huge issue anyway - just implement both so far.  GDM allows
querying which actions are available and that's really the only thing where
it differs from KDM.  That's the only difference.
That seems like the simplist solution for now.

Well, yeah, this is the other difference.  GDM only supports scheduling a
shutdown/reboot after the session from which it was requested ends.
Scheduling a shutdown would also be useful in GDM I suppose.  Other then that
it's then really up to the session manager to figure out what DM is running
and what are it's capabilities.  And if consolehelper is available it can
fall back on that is the current gnome-session does (it doesn't use gdm sup
protocol yet I don't think).
Yea that sounds good to me.
