so I set up my own branch now as well:


  git://people.freedesktop.org/~psychon/libxcb 1.11

(In retrospect it was a bad idea to have a branch of the same name as a tag)

So my plan would be to do the release based on this. A "git diff" against
Olivier's shows only the expected differences.

For the "release commit" I would use this patch (and of course I will remember
to fix up the date before actually committing this *cough*):
