SDDM change pushed back to Fedora 21

As the Fedora 20 final change deadline is upon us, we tried, but were unable to make sddm login manager as shiny, bug-free, and featureful enough to continue to use it by default (for kde).  So, in our kde-sig meeting this morning, we made the hard decision to implement our contingency plan, to revert to the tried-and-true kdm default again.

Best wishes for an even better and more polished sddm for Fedora 21.

Which brings me back to the idea to finally replace KDM with SDDM on my Arch.

Thanks for posting about this decision. It is important to convey that Fedora is ready to revert too-buggy ideas in order to create a quality release.
