> As previously mentioned, I created a git supermodule for X11R7.5. It is now
> in a usable state.
> The supermodule starting point was X11R7.4. It includes modules listed in
>, with dependencies outside the xorg/ tree in a directory called
> extras (xcb, mesa, pixman).
> Some modules removed since 7.4 have been removed from the supermodule, other
> modules have been updated to their latest released version.
> With the release of the server snapshot last week the module is now
> up-to-date and everything builds against each other (tested on F-11
> tinderbox without any system X and GL headers installed).
> Please find the shortlog below, though note that it contains all versions
> when added to the module. Thus some modules may be listed multiple times if
> they got updated a few times within the last few weeks.
> I'll keep updating with releases as they come until we hit X11R7.5.  If you
> notice a module that is not at the required version please notify me.
> To use this supermodule to get a full build do the following:
>     git clone git://
>     cd X11R7.5
>     git submodule init
>     git submodule update

I get this:

  $ git submodule update
  fatal: Needed a single revision
  Unable to find current revision in submodule path 'extras/mesa/mesa'

`git pull' works within the `mesa' subdirectory, BTW.
