   * Merge with Debian unstable, remaining changes:
     - apport/, debian/x11-common.install:
       + apport hook for xorg-server crashes
     - local/Failsafe/*, x11-common.install:
       + Bulletproof-X.
     - control:
       + Change maintainer address.
       + xserver-xorg: Recommends displayconfig-gtk
       + Move xorg-docs Recommends to Suggests, because xorg-docs is in
       + Add "xserver-xorg-driver-all" transitional package to make
         dapper->hardy upgrades work.
     - control, rules:
       + Add a dependency to x11-common for each binary built to save
         disk/livecd space.
       + Symlink the doc directories to x11-common, explicitly remove the
         doc directories on upgrade for the now symlinked doc directories.
     - local/xserver-wrapper.c:
       + Stop handling -config specifically in the wrapper, as Xorg now
         handles this itself.
     - local/dexconf, control:
       + Added support for vmmouse_detect (if present) to override mouse
         driver with vmware. Depends on mdetect.
     - local/dexconf:
       + Add extra bits for ps3fb xorg.conf.
     - scripts/vars.{amd64,i386}:
       + Install both xserver-xorg-video-intel AND xserver-xorg-video-i810,
         instead of OR.
     - scripts/vars.i386:
       + Add xserver-xorg-video-amd and xserver-xorg-video-psb.
     - scripts/vars.lpia:
       + Copied from vars.i386.
     - local/Xsession:
       + If ~/.xsession-errors is bigger than 0.5MiB, truncate it to the last
         0.5MiB to avoid having it grow indefinitively. (This does not happen
         with gdm anyway since gdm cleans the file on login).
       + Make sure to ask video driver on sparc even if autodetected. Some
         cards still require weird overrides (ati -> fbdev) that are not
         100% known in all combinations.
       + Skip video card autodetection if xforcevesa is set.

   * Deregister old debconf questions before calling dexconf.  dexconf calls
     db_stop, and we can't use debconf after that.  Add a comment to that
     effect above the dexconf call in debian/, to try
     to prevent future mistakes.  Thanks, Michael Vogt!

   [ Julien Cristau ]
   * Make xorg Architecture: any.  Depend on sparc-utils [sparc] instead of
     sparc-utils | not+sparc.
   * dexconf: Use xorg.conf/xserver-xorg instead of $REALCONFIG/$XSERVERPKG.
     Thanks, Timo Aaltonen!
   [ Tormod Volden ]
   * Narrow down the drivers to filter from the list,
     because otherwise radeonhd would not be selectable.
     (Closes: #446441, LP: #174311)
   [ David Nusinow ]
   * Don't write the default depth to xorg.conf any more.
     The drivers should choose the appropriate depth by default now.
   * Don't bother with resolutions in xorg.conf
     We now rely on the server and drivers to do the right thing. Previously,
     our best-case scenario was to have the xserver-xorg postinstall script ask
     the monitor what the optimal values were, and if that wasn't possible to
     give the user a default list of resolutions and a best-guess hsync and
     vrefresh values that the user could override. The server and almost all
     drivers will do this on boot anyway using properly maintained code, which
     allows them to better adapt to changes. randr 1.2-compliant drivers will
     do this even better than we possibly could. Finally, the server will
     provide a better list of defaults than we were doing anyway. There will
     undoubtedly be bugs uncovered by this change, but we need  to find and fix
     the actual bugs in the drivers and server in order to move forward.
     + Don't recommend xresprobe any more
     + Don't recommend laptop-detect any more or look for it in server postinst
   * Don't set fbdev in the postinst for r128 on ppc.
     The driver will do this automatically if no option is specified by the user
   * Allow cross-building. Thanks Neil Williams. Closes: #451293
   * Bump standards version to No changes needed.
