So when the libdrm regressions get sorted out (and they will?) the
plan is to pull new intel/ati/nouveau/mesa into Lucid? Would there be
a PPA where we can start testing those already, even with the
problematic libdrm? As far as I understand xorg-edgers currently have
versions well beyond what we expect will be in Lucid. At least it has
the 7.8 branch of mesa, but it would be nice to be able to ask people
to test the 7.7 branch in order to check if a bug is fixed there or
not. Also, there will be bugs in xorg-edgers that were introduced
after the versions we expect will land in Lucid were branched off.
