[arch-dev-public] X.org 7.3 about to hit Testing

Hey all,

I've had several discussions with devs and users about X.org 7.3 and the 
question why it was not yet pushed to testing. My reasons were the ABI 
changes that rendered nvidia drivers unusable and I had no reports on 
fglrx so far.

Now that nvidia released version 100.14.19 the -ignoreABI workaround is 
not necessary anymore. The legacy drivers have not yet been updated 
though and still no definite reports on fglrx. I would very much like to 
push 7.3 to testing still, as it would save a great deal of work since I 
would only have to maintain one version of it.

What are your thoughts?
