Hi everyone,

I've filed a bug report as per instructions at 
http://freedesktop.org/wiki/AccountRequests for a git repo of XCB.

Barton I've CC-ed you would appreciate if you could authorize it.

I'm also a little curious if anyone has gone through the patch. How do we 
proceed making this a DLL, testing, etc? What next?

Bye for now
