We should be making this easier for you.  Sigh.  First, go
to http://members.x.org and sign up to be a Member of the
X.Org Foundation by pushing the "join" button.  (Other
regulars on this list who haven't already done so, this
applies to you too!  Go!)  Drop me email when you're done,
and I'll get your membership approved.

Then post a note to sitewranglers at freedesktop.org and ask
them for help setting up a git repo for your work.  Cc me so
they know you're legit.

Please add your copyright to the top of the file, and mark
it with the same license information as the rest of XCB.

The Git tree tracks which is your work pretty well, so yeah,
we're probably good with that.

We rely on Git for this service.  When your patches are
committed to the central repo, they will be marked as yours.

We need to get a Contributor License of some kind in place.
I'll work on this today.

Looking forward to it!
