That's a call for help,feedback,comment on lightdm bug #870297 :
"Lightdm logins not being logged in wtmp"
From the comments and feedback that seems like an issue that should be
fixed in the lts, there is a merge request proposed to fix it on:
The lightdm project has been trying to avoid adding code "just because
it's this way for 25 years" but trying to understand if things still
make sense on a modern linux distribution rather and that's where we
need your help.
Does anyone knows if:
- utmp and wtmp support is still important?
- if those are "speced" or described in a reference document somewhere?
- if the login manager is the right place to record those entries?
Review of the previous listed merge request from people who know about
the topic would be welcome as well
