I don't think Lightdm is good substitute for lxdm ... Lightdm upstream is going toward to Mir. without any focus for XOrg or Wayland

I'm not any insider and I'm unable to say anything about maintenance status. But http://lxqt.org/about/ and https://en.opensuse.org/LXQT say it clearly, I think. Wording at lxde.org is bit confusing in this aspect, I'd say, but newer posts are about LxQt and there seems to be no new recent version of LXDE. https://en.opensuse.org/LXDE also seems outdated. The development is slow, but it works fine, I like it on netbook (otherwise I use KDE). See also https:// github.com/lxde Yes, I'd expect LXDE being replaced by LXQt in openSUSE. Am I wrong?
LXQt is indeed going to replace LXDE, that's out of question... just it seems:
- The LXQt maintainers do not consider it ready for prime use
- The LXDE Maintainers have not more interest beyond: it works for now.
Which is exactly why my post was about removing LXDM and not LXDE. Of course LXDM is a 'part' of LXDE, but the DE can very well be started from another DM - and removing lxdm allows us to finally also get rid of ConsoleKit. Frankly speaking, I'm not even sure if CK even still does what it was supposed to do originally.
In Tumbleweed, LXDE and LXQt are available for installation (and both are minimally tested in openQA).
