I find myself in agreement with Matthias here. What are the important
features that we have regressions for? 

- Themes

I always found themes for the display manager a bit over the top. It's a
screen you want out of the way as fast as possible in most cases, no? 

- Documentation

The only thing I can think of that might need this is A11Y, but that
could just as well be mentioned during install or in the release notes /
installation guide. That is if A11Y support is there and working.

- Configuration editor

Never used it personally for other purposes than testing it :-)


Never used this in GDM either.

Other things?

The only problem I have seen with the new GDM so far from testing it in
rawhide since it got in there is avery recent breakage that made the
keyboard layout menu empty, but I think that's broken on a lower level
and is more of an issue with rawhide.
