comment LightDM and the need for a greeter in set-top box environment
While this doesn't answer the question, nodm was specifically designed to address this use case. I'm unsure of present development status there.

comment Why are some Open Office packages marked as “local or obsolete” in Synaptic
I don't know of one, sorry. The content of lucid-backports is available from http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/lucid-backports/main/binary-i386/ (or select a different architecture if you use a different architecture), but it appears it doesn't contain openoffice.org. All official (and LP hosted unofficial) versions of packages can be found with URLs like https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org, which indicates that it hasn't been backported. Your version seems newer than that of the Scribblers (https://launchpad.net/~openoffice-pkgs/+archive/ppa). I'm at a loss :(

comment What is the recommended method for getting & installing updates for an Alpha or Beta release?
It depends on the changes. apt-get upgrade will upgrade all the software on your system to the newest version, unless this requires installing additional new packages. apt-get dist-upgrade will upgrade all the software on your system to the newest packages, including installing any new packages that may be required (or even recommended). You could try just upgrade, and then afterwards run dist-upgrade to see if dist-upgrade would do anything for your system that upgrade has not already done.
