Nowish means: "don't want" or am I missing something .
So you don't want release to the public, that what I guess .
Instead 7.3.1 was being robust, and its better than 7.2, xserver 1.3.

xserver 1.4 -> xorg 7.3
xserver 1.5 -> xorg 7.4
xserver 1.7 -> xorg 7.5 ??
About drives IMHO , drives should be to devel on a stable xservers ,
for example the intel-drv , last bits should be test against
xserver-1.4.2 and we should test xserver-1.5 with a stable intel-drv
Lets say: xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.3 or xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.4.1
testing last bits of one with last bits of the other could be hard
stuff , that MHO .
Thanks, I will be testing the new release, and try to help in
