I'll be looking for it :-) BTW, just curious as to why you offer only
rsync? Seems like CVS would be a bit nicer for tracking changes.

I think I know what was screwed up with my radeon X module, so I'll put
some more work into it this weekend. We may be able to have at least a
somewhat functional, non-FB radeon Xserver with the Debian 4.1.0 debs if I
can shake out the remaining issues. Unfortunately, an untimely
interruption on Wednesday set me back a bit (it appears that I deleted the
somewhat working copy of my patch). Shouldn't take too long to
reconstruct it, though.
