Aieee.  I just assumed that becoming an X.Org Member
automatically gave access to the FreeDesktop.org
infrastructure.  Thanks for the clarification.

Thanks!  Put them on the X.Org wiki at least.

Sorry, s/License/Agreement/g.

So far we at XCB have done a lousy job of assuring that
proper license and copyright were attached to new
contributions, hence the recent "will you let us use your
code in util?" mess.  I don't need copyright assignment from
folks, but I would like at some point to get a statement
asserting that they own the copyright to the code in our
repository and intended to license it appropriately, and
some semi-permanent contact information.
