I wouldn't say I have a grand vision, but it's also been actual years
since a release. "Moribund" might be a better word than "conservative"
at this point. Certainly if someone _does_ have some interesting
project in mind it's worth hearing about, but right now my primary
interest is that pixman see enough maintenance that xserver keeps

I think probably the answer to the vision question will determine the
answer to the commit access question. I'm generally pretty liberal
about granting that kind of access, but I'm not the only stakeholder
here, just trying to get something moving.
