Another possibility is leaving 1.5 in [community] then start the every-other cadence with 1.6, 1.8, ...

dgbaley27: Yes lightdm 1.5.1 works fine, and that is the version I pushed in the first place. But a fellow TU urged me to push the stable version instead.
I realize wine is the devel release, but apparently a lot of linux distros are packaging this one, it appears to be the one exception. Besides, Lightdm is at 1.4 in every distro (except Fedora Rawhide). Still I'll take it to the other TUs and see what they think.

It's not necessarily a bad thing to package the odd-numbered releases in [community]. Look at how we handle wine, even-numbered releases are stable, but we're all fine with the "preview" releases.

Morfeo: I've pushed lightdm 1.4.0 in [community], as it is the latest stable release. To avoid conlicts, I've uploaded lightdm-devel in AUR and will merge this package into it. Please ping me if you want to reclaim ownership of the package, and I'll disown it for you to adopt.

Morfeo: The package is in [community]. Just a quick question before I delete this one, is dbus-glib really needed? It builds and appears to run fine without, and namcap isn't complaining at all (also I checked packages from other distros, none has added dbus-glib in the deps).

Morfeo: If that's okay with you, I will be transferring lightdm to [community], I hope to be able to do this this evening.

In case of sticking to tmpfiles, one addition is needed for gtk3
f /run/lightdm/.pam_environment 0644 lightdm lightdm - GDK_CORE_DEVICE_EVENTS=true

This will fix gdk's wrong behavior when setting mouse cursor.

I think it would be better if lightdm's home directory was /var/lib/lightdm rather than /var/run/lightdm.
lightdm-gtk-greeter writes last user to the file ~lightdm/.cache/lightdm-gtk-greeter/state so that it can default to that user at next login. When ~lightdm is /var/run/lightdm this doesn't work across reboots.
I'm currently working to add similar functionality to razor-lightdm-greeter upstream.

On KDE I still don't have shutdown or restart options even though I added the extra lines to /etc/pam.d/lightdm-greeter
