Anyone compiling from CVS needs to get this and others(?) from git iirc.

Does this mean that anyone maintaining a part of X can pick whatever
revision system they want?

If so, what is the current list of things kept in git that need to be
added to a CVS checkout of X before building?

When i checked out X, i got xorg/lib/X11 from CVS. Can this be deleted
from CVS to minimize confusion? (or else ban git and any other revision
systems different to the designated X revision system)
