Yes, the xorg-announce is being moderated, best is to send your questions
to the regular xorg at lists.x.org list (cc'ed).

Prhaps you could consider my report.

Unlikely, that file has been untouched in the xorgproto repo since it was
last moved in 2018, 6 years ago:


My package manager (rpm) complains that the header is already provided by

That's right, both packages include that header file, that's why the RPM
package for xorgproto (xorg-x11-proto-devel) does _not_  include that file
to avoid the conflict, see the list of headers from the spec file:


FWIW, I already packaged xorgproto 2024.1 for both Fedora 40 and rawhide.


So you may want to use those directly instead.
