libxcb is an external dependency from X.org's point of view. Its
releases are at:
XCB 1.0 will be released before X.org 7.2 is final. At this point it
looks like nothing significant will have changed since 1.0rc2; mostly
we've been working on integrating Doxygen into the build.

I'd say it's an important part of RC testing but the bugs you find
should go to the individual maintainers. :-)

I, for one, am interested in hearing whether libxcb and the new libX11
work on NetBSD.
