The latest Debian X news and information is always at the X Strike Force
page, <http://www.debian.org/~branden/>.  This page includes a link to
netgod's unofficial slink builds.

Wichert and Richard Braakman and I have been discussing a stable-update
version of X.  Initially it was going to be, but with the release
of 3.3.4 imminent, it would seem to make more sense just to use that.

So the plan is, once 3.3.4 is out, get it packaged for potato, see if it is
in any respect worse than (which I doubt), give it a couple of
weeks, and then repackage it for slink.
