I'll be release-managing 1.4.1, since the biggest changes will be a
bunch of input fixes I need to cherry-pick from Peter's MPX work
(thanks!) to make extended events really work properly.  One of Eric or
Adam will do 1.5.0, so I don't know what the alpha/beta/RC schedule for
that looks like, but I assume it needs pciaccess to settle down and come
into wider use first.  Anyway.

Due to various travel commitments and not having really got started
properly until now, I'm pre-emptively slipping 1.4.1 by 10 days, to
November 10th.

As always, nominate on http://www.x.org/wiki/Server14Branch.  Block any
bugs on xorg-server-1.4.1 (that's an alias, and works anywhere a bug
number is called for).
