I have tested Xfce and lightdm and things are fine with both RC4 and
RC3. However I'd like to ask you if we can go for RC4, because ...

RC3 Xfce x84_64 was slightly oversized with 701 MB. RC2 and RC4 on the
other hand only were 691 MB.

I've also tested the fprintd update to fix #810040, which AFAIK is the
only difference between RC3 and RC4, so I'd opt for RC4.

Kind regards,
