nodm (0.13-1.3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload
* d/p/nodm.service-Don-t-respawn-or-fail-if-disabled-in-et.patch:
Don't mark nodm as failed, or restart it, if it was disabled via
/etc/default/nodm. Thanks to Ansgar Burchardt for suggesting

* d/p/nodm.service-Use-KillMode-mixed-with-10-second-timeo.patch:
Kill main process with SIGTERM, then kill the whole service with
SIGKILL if it is still up after 10 seconds. This approximates the
behaviour of the LSB init script under systemd, and prevents a
90 second hang during shutdown under some circumstances.
* Remove myself from Uploaders. I do not intend to take long-term
responsibility for this package.
