This is a status from over here:

macbook pro ati chipset works perfectly
with the latest git xserver, minor issue due to me
getting a bit confused but nothing out of the ordinary.

As for my other machine the imac nvidia chipset, well
a bit of an ABI issue:

(II) Loading extension DRI2
(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/
(II) Module nvidia: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
         compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.0
         Module class: X.Org Video Driver
================ WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING ================
This server has a video driver ABI version of 6.0 that is not
supported by this NVIDIA driver.  Please check for driver updates or downgrade to an X
server with a supported driver ABI.
(WW) NVIDIA: The driver will continue to load, but may behave strangely.
(WW) NVIDIA: This server has an unsupported input driver ABI version 
(have 7.0, need < 5.0).  The driver will continue to load, but may 
behave strangely.
(II) LoadModule: "kbd"

soulution was(after googling a bit)
  startx -ignoreABI,
but for some reason this didn't do anything.
I had to use in xorg.conf

Section "ServerFlags"
         Option "IgnoreABI" "true"

Hopefully we don't have to wait to long for nvidia..

Anyways nice work with the xserver xorg!!
