Bug Description

Impact
------
gnome-settings-daemon 3.24.2 is a bugfix release in the stable 3.24 series.

https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-settings-daemon/log?h=gnome-3-24
https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-settings-daemon/tree/NEWS?h=gnome-3-24

gnome-settings-daemon itself is used by Ubuntu Budgie and Ubuntu GNOME.
The schemas are also used by Ubuntu, Ubuntu Kylin and Ubuntu MATE. And Ubuntu Touch.

This also fixes Hi-DPI in GDM (LP: #1685035), the brightness control in some dual-GPU computers (LP: #1683445), and adds a D-Bus API to match the mediakeys documentation (LP: #1686077)

Test Case
---------
After installing the update, reboot and log into GNOME

Regression Potential
--------------------
There was a minimal fix for rfkill handling (to revert GNOME's behavior back to how it worked in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS), but because this ends up causing regressions for some other people, I have reverted this commit since it's better not to introduce a new bug into a stable release. See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/760517 if you want more details.

The other changes look like minimal bugfixes. Schemas shouldn't be affected in this update.

This bug was fixed in the package gnome-settings-daemon - 3.24.2-0ubuntu1

---------------
gnome-settings-daemon (3.24.2-0ubuntu1) artful; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release (LP: #1689610)
    - Fix brightness control in some dual-GPU computers (LP: #1683445)
    - Disable GNOME's rfkill handling which basically reverts this to
      how it worked or didn't in 16.04 LTS. Hopefully, a more thorough
      rework will be done in time for 3.26.
  * Drop patches applied in new release:
    - git_fix-gdm-plugins.patch
    - media-keys-Fix-mmkeys-D-Bus-API-to-match-API-docs.patch

---------------
gnome-settings-daemon (3.24.2-0ubuntu0.1) zesty; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release (LP: #1689610)
    - Fix gdm starting with no plugins which broke Hi-DPI support
      on the login screen (LP: #1685035)
    - Fix brightness control in some dual-GPU computers (LP: #1683445)
    - Own the D-Bus name that the API documentation tells users of the
      multimedia keys API they should use (org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.MediaKeys),
      in addition to the D-Bus name that they actually use in practice
      (org.gnome.SettingsDaemon). (LP: #1686077)
  * Add revert-disable-rfkill-keys-handling.patch:
    - Revert commit that disabled GNOME's rfkill handling. Although
      this fixes problems for some users, it makes things worse for
      other people.
