What does this exactly mean?
You have imported X.org source code _over_ XFree86 4.x code?
That would probably imply huge diffs.
Why not a new CVS tree?
Also, what's the real advantage?
Isn't X.org's license equally questionable?
They have taken a project under MIT (equivalent to BSD) license
and are beginning to move it to GPL.
What's so good about that?
Please, understand that these are genuine questions.
I'm not trying to oppose you.
I'm trying to understand what's going on here.
I believe you are much better informed. :-)
