Public bug reported:


xrdp is in Universe and has no deps outside of main.  xorgxrdp is built
from the same source package.


We want to make Ubuntu (desktop) integrate well in to as many other
operating systems as we can when running as a VM guest.  RDP is a good
choice for this, especially on Windows, as it offers good integration
and can utilise the tools already installed on the host.  This will make
Ubuntu (desktop) perform and integrate well when running as a guest, and
show off the desktop in the best light.


The package has had three CVEs in the last five years.  All of them were fixed 
upstream quickly.

It uses port 3389.  [TODO: Need to find out if this port is opened
automatically, in which case we need to lock it down to not be open by
default. We (desktop) will look in to this now and update this summary
as needed]

[Quality assurance]

There are a relatively low number of bugs in Launchpad. This package is
well maintained in Debian and upstream are actively developing it.


All binary deps are in main, or come from the same source package.

[Standards compliance]


Desktop Team will take on maintenance of this package.

[Background information]

This package provides two levels of functionality.  It can turn an
Ubuntu machine in to a terminal server, hosting many remote sessions
from a single machine.  Or it can allow remote KVM(and sound) access to
a logged in session to allow the desktop to be viewed from another
location.  It is expected that this second mode will be the default and
most useful for most users.
