Though xorg-server 1.8 is not completely issue-free, I don't think 1.7
from extra isn't issue-free either. I've been running these packages for
months now without much problems.
Before we start moving xorg-server 1.8, I would like to know when we can
move kernel26. The latest kernel has a lot of fixes for Intel and
ATI/AMD DRM. Do we have really important open bugs for 2.6.34, or are we
just waiting for the magic .1 release?
