Whatever plan there is, is mine... I do intend to make the updates to at
least 7.5 base set before too much longer, however as I have stated
there are issues for various chips that need resolving. I don't have a
solution that I am happy with for either intel or nouveau right now,
radeon will just work. As was also mentiioned... I get lots of grief
when updates are made, which doesn't help my motivation for the massive
amount of work required to get this done. The effort requires not only
updating the main chip drivers, but lots of obscure drivers that have 3
users, as well as a full pointyhat run and generally fixing lots of
non-xorg ports with the new infrastructure.
