Sorry, wrong version # in the subject line in last email.
(If you have no clue what gdm is, skip a few paragraphs down first)
The 2.14.5 release is a stable release of GDM that fixes a security
related issue discovered in GDM 2.14.4 only. I recommend not using
GDM 2.14.4. Refer to bug details mentioned below for more information.
- Explicitely adjust the effective GID before running the child session
program to avoid remaining with high privileges. Fixes bug #340347.
- Updated config/gettextfoo.h to reflect current strings for translation.
Fixes bug #340017. (Brian Cameron)
- Updated comments in GDM configuration files (Brian Cameron)
- Translation updates (Takeshi AIHANA, Josep Puigdemont Casamaj\303\263,
Artur Flinta, Priit Laes, Chao-Hsiung Liao, Lukas Novotny, Daniel
Nylander, Ignacio Casal Quinteiro, Francisco Javier F. Serrador,
Alexander Shopov, Funda Wang)
Note: GDM2 was originally written by Martin K. Petersen <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Much work has been done on GDM2 by George Lebl, and Brian Cameron
currently shares maintainership duties with the Queen of England.
Note2: If installing from the tarball do note that make install
overwrites most of the setup files, all except gdm.conf. It will
however save backups with the .orig extension first.
Note3: Note3 has been depracated ...

No RPM this time around BTW. Have fun. A spec file is included though,
so you can try:
rpmbuild -ta gdm-whatever.tar.gz
