I swear I had the pre-git history grafted in to the current
repositories for a while, but it isn't there now. So you can now find
the complete pre-git history of XCB and related projects here:

git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xcb/historic

Check out where it all started for an idea of how much incredibly
better it is now: :-)

Looks like Vincent added that.


Vincent, did you need it to handle property formats other than 32-bit,
or were you just being careful to handle anything the server might
send back?
