Why is kdm still depending on consolekit?

Asked by Simon Rettberg on 2014-02-16

With 13.10, Ubuntu finally got rid of ConsolieKit by integrating systemd's logind with lightdm, Unity etc. However, kdm still pulls in ConsoleKit (and in 14.04 this will still be the case, according to http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/kdm), as it's built with ck support enabled. So the obvious question is: Why? Is it just not really being maintained, since Ubuntu prefers the kde-greeter for lightdm? Other distros have long removed the ck dependency from their kdm packages.
