Whiteboard

Work items:
[chasedouglas] Investigate input-redirection patches (not needed for Natty):
[raof] Talk to debian about adding some form of xvfb test to xserver build time checks
[raof] Call apport.hookutils.add_drm_info() from compiz, X, kernel hooks:
[sconklin] Make the intel kernel module always print: possible outputs, connected outputs, detected modes, selected mode:
[pitti] Can we have apport detect if the gpu hang did not produce debug info, and then offer to the user to turn debugging on (whatever the kernel team comes up with, or adding “drm.debug=0x06” to the kernel command line), prompt to reboot, and then next time send a bug report in:
