Remi: Ouch. I was afraid that might have happened.  Our
sincere apologies.

All: I don't seem to have the right permissions to move
aside or remove the old repository.  Could someone at fd.o
please make the git repository at
git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xcb propoer go away?  We
want to keep the subdirectory repositories libxcb, proto,
etc, obviously, since they're current.

Thanks much.
