  Support globbing in seat config sections

Status in Light Display Manager:

Status in “lightdm” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Add support for simple globbing in seat config sections.

  Example: if a config section [Seat:seatFoo*] is available in
  lightdm.conf, it will match any seat name starting with "seatFoo",
  like "seatFooBar", "seatFooBaz", etc.

  In particular, [Seat:seat*] will match any seat added from logind
  (including seat0), and [Seat:*] will match any seat (including those
  eventually added from other mechanisms than logind), just as
  [SeatDefaults] currently does.

  It was already merged into trunk in revision 2040, but has been
  reverted in revision 2042 due to some unexpected problem, so I'm
  opnening this bug report to keep track of changes.
