Yeah true, but that still doesn't excuse the lack of testing, especially
in a package as complex a gdm (I've spent a lot of time updating it ot
the latest gnome-shell version and integrating with systemd permissions
etc, so I know it's a somewhat "temperamental" package that shouldn't be
updated blindly).

But perhaps Ray will send that email - the git tag for 3.2.1 is not even
pushed yet so I figure we're very quick of the mark grabbing the
tarballs here.
