In order to get wider exposure to the current list of blocker bugs, I
have put together a list of them along with a comment on each (below).
I will keep this list updated and will post it and the bug stats each

We would like to ask your help with the following:

1. Please help us track down solutions for the current blocker bugs
   listed below.
2. If there are other bugs that should be considered blockers, please
   add them to bugzilla so that we can track them.

FYI, the main blocker bug is #351:

Current blocker bugs: 11
     Fixed yesterday:  8
     Added yesterday:  3

Current list of blocker bugs:
* Bug #770: Hangs with Chromium
  - Fix has been checked into Mesa CVS
  - Eric Anholt has permission to merge changes from Mesa CVS

* Bug #999: Release notes for next release
  - Need someone to start documenting changes for release notes

* Bug #1029: Hard failure if socket directories cannot be chowned to root
  - This solution breaks on systems that do not have setuid
  - xfs uses xtrans also and since it is not setuid root, it cannot
    chown to root and bails
  - Proposed solutions:
    1. Create a helper program that is setuid root to create dir, or
    2. Revert the change back to X11R6.7 version

* Bug #1065: Test and enable Render accel on R100
  - Race condition related to bug #770
  - Will test after changes are merged in from Mesa CVS

* Bug #1099: Placeholder for for all bugs "held open" but not blocking
  - Each of these could use more investigation

* Bug #1104: Won't build on Solaris/SPARC
  - Patch supplied and reviewed
  - Waiting for new patch to review
