Nothing really forced Fedora to stick into a release something
which is clearly not yet done. No problems with something like
that in rawhide but one should pay attention to testers.
Then you should bitch and complain all day and all night. ;-) Of course it
is all for nothing now but maybe it will make you feel better. ;-)
As I recall, and I could be wrong, this is a complete rewrite. And it is part
of the current 'new' GNOME. And the 'old one' would not work well or at
All of this was announced and discussed and no one on the development list
Linux is a moving target. I can not think of anything that is ever truly
'done' now or when released. When software, by your description, is truly
'done' it is usually dropped because it is no longer being supported and/or
worked on any longer.
As for GDM? What you see is what you will get. Fedora 9 is scheduled for next
week and there is already somewhat of an expected slowdown in Rawhide.

I missed the autologin feature. The link(s) that I posted before show you how
to do that now. The new way. I found that information with a little effort and
a little time. I dealt with it as it is.
