xserver 7.3 has been merged, as have most drivers

2007-05-25 kamion: some review notes
2007-05-31 kamion: approved

2007-06-28 bryce: See http://people.ubuntu.com/~bryce/Xorg/versions_current.html for up to date status
2007-08-15 bryce: xserver 1.3.99 has been released; expecting xserver 1.4 after Feature Freeze. Still TBD if we wish to undertake the work of migrating to xserver 1.4 at that point.
2007-08-17 bryce: as discussed at the developer meeting yesterday, we're going to opt for leaving xserver 1.4 for Gutsy+1. In checking with some upstream xorg developers, they concur this is probably the wise approach given our release schedule. The piece required for displayconfig-gtk, xrandr 1.2, has already been included in Gutsy, so this will not impact either of those specs.
2007-09-07 Gavindi: xserver1.4 has been released
2007-10-15 bryce: As mentioned above, this was deferred for Hardy. Re-proposing for UDS Boston. I think the blueprint as written is probably still good to go, but since Hardy is LTS it may be valuable to discuss addressing Xorg QA, testing, and other related topics to ensure the Xorg we ship in Hardy is as rock solid as we can make it.
2007-10-29 bryce: xserver 1.4 is uploaded, most dependent packages are also sync'd. This is close to done.
2007-10-30 bryce: timo verifies this is now done.
