Migrate from ConsoleKit to logind

Registered by James Hunt on 2013-03-01

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "Migrate from ConsoleKit to logind" for updated plans.

Ubuntu currently uses ConsoleKit to manage logged-in users. However, ConsoleKit is now unmaintained software.

Since logind is now packaged in the archive and usable stand-alone, we should consider planning a migration path from ConsoleKit to logind.
