I appreciate you working on this, and appreciate you reaching out to various
desktops to see what features they need.  It sounds like a useful project.

I have a question, though.  There's currently discussion within the Ubuntu
docs team about Unity documentation and the Canonical contributor's
agreement. To contribute docs that are accepted into Unity trunk,
contributors would need to sign the Canonical agreement.  Would
contributions to LightDM (documentation or otherwise) require the
contributor to sign the Canonical contributor agreement before those
contributions could be accepted into the LightDM trunk?

Thanks very much,
