slim (1.3.6-5.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* slim.service: Drop BusName=, fixing endless (re-)start loop under systemd.
Thanks Aggelos Avgerinos <> for testing.
(Closes: #861474)
* slim.service: Drop Conflicts=plymouth-quit.service and
OnFailure=plymouth-quit.service, as slim does not stop plymouth by itself.
Retain After=plymouth-quit.service for correct ordering though, which
should be sufficient to solve #860465.

slim (1.3.6-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix bugged Debian-Lines theme. (Closes: #776693)

sign and remove a trailing space in the slimlock.1.
