This question documents how we used to inflict the mandatory login banners required on our Linux machines at work. Unfortunately, this procedure is no longer effective with Gnome 3 in Fedora 15 & 16. Gnome 3 seems to ignore the banner_message fields in gconf-editor.

Does Gnome 3 provide an equivalent procedure that allows us to present a warning message to users prior to login?

NOTE: Moving this line of inquiry to here:
