To sum it up: You say you wanted to work together with me, but you did
not contact me, you did not tell me and you did not send me your ks,
although you promised to do so. Right?

My name is at the top of the ks and you hardly can remove a copyright
notice. Nevertheless AFAICS all you changed is:
      * You replaced slim with gdm because you could not get it working
      * and included PolicyKit-gnome
This is not really much remixing of my work. Don't you think that my
name should have been mentioned in the announcement?
