Hi Mark,

Well of course this is a very minor bug or not a bug at all, but it seemed strange to me that lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf is handled via the "alternatives" system, so I thought it wasn't expected to be modified by other tools.
In other words, that lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf-devuan-cinnabar was expected to be left alone, while lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings should have created a new alternative to be modified.
Very minor stuff, as I said :)
