Re: some closure on the xorg updates issue

Thank you for reframing the question in a light that many of the rest of

Put yet another way, upgrading X.org isn't about punishing vendors of
proprietary drivers, it's about _rewarding_ vendors of open source
drivers.

If you were the owner of a company that had just announced plans to open
source your drivers, would you feel you had made the right decision if a
major linux distribution announced it was planning not to release the
software that enabled your driver to run because there were still
vendors who hadn't open sourced their drivers?  Where's the creme
filling?

Fortunately we arent announcing anything like that. We are just announcing that we would wait for the next release before we provide this major update. You can pain it as a idealogical battle if you want to but that's not what this is about at all.
