Thanks! Great work! Looks really good! 

Just a list of packages which have already been released before with a
higher release number. Maybe you comment on, why these are not part of

glproto-1.4.7.tar.bz2 (1.4.8)
libXau-1.0.1.tar.bz2 (1.0.2)
libXdmcp-1.0.1.tar.bz2 (1.0.2)
libXvMC-1.0.2.tar.bz2 (1.0.3)
xdm-1.0.4.tar.bz2 (1.1.0)
xf86-input-evdev-1.1.2.tar.bz2 (1.1.3)
xf86-input-penmount-1.1.0.tar.bz2 (1.2.0)
xf86-video-i810-1.6.5.tar.bz2 (1.7.2)
xprop-1.0.1.tar.bz2 (1.0.2)
xproto-7.0.5.tar.bz2 (7.0.9)

Most interesting for me: xdm, xf86-video-i810.
