Hi everyone,

Thanks for the overwhelming positive response. In true Ubuntu spirit
Rico, Michael, and Alberto busted this out today despite the timezone

There's no driver difference, so if you were using xorg-edgers or
michael's PPA, nothing really changes. The real fun begins when new
drivers are released.

- I've gone ahead an applied for the hardware for Rico and Michael
through the community process,
- We still need to sort where bugs will live and policies around bug
reporting and what not, but I'm sure we'll sort this over the next few
- Some mails to the list seem to be stuck in moderation, can someone
on the desktop team check it out? In particular Michael Larabel sent a
mail with his thoughts.

>From my initial testing swapping over to the new PPA has worked as
expected, orcs were slain, I'm not trying to brag, but let's just say
Goroth Graug-Slayer won't be bothering anyone again.
