Re: Backport request: libxcb / xcb-proto 1.13

The upstream bug that stops mesa 18.2.1 being built for stretch has been resolved.

Upstream commit: dd333c66bdcb11c0d7c5 "vulkan: Disable randr lease for libxcb < 1.13"

As such, the backport of libxcb 1.13 is not really required at this point.

Note that certain vulkan functions won't work exactly as intended (as the back end functions in libxcb won't exist) but that is a minor inconvenience.

Hi All,

Requesting a backport of libxcb and xcb-proto 1.13 for stretch-backports please. These packages are already in buster.

Rationale: Mesa 18.2.1 seems to now require libxcb 1.13, due to changes in the vulkan code. I suspect the requested packages will be needed if newer Mesa support in stretch-backports is to continue.

See https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=108024 for detail, but basically while the code says that libxcb 1.11 onwards is supported (commit linked in bug report), it seems that a recent commit (also linked in bug report) has forced libxcb 1.13 to be required.

Basically I'm requesting this backport in anticipation that it'll be needed to support mesa 18.2.1 or later in stretch-backports, if not now, soon.
