Bug#309811: xfree86-common: FAQ should say X.Org, not freedesktop.org, is the vendor of the X.Org modular tree

Package: xfree86-common
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-13
Severity: minor

Note to XSF: set submitter to Daniel Stone <daniel@fooishbar.org> after BTS
acks bug.

Also note that per the release policy[1], this bug is not fixable for
sarge.  We may need to fix it in x11-common (xorg-x11) for etch.

X.Org is the upstream vendor of the modular tree, not fd.o.
