[ As was recommended by Joel Dahl I am resending this request to the ports
  list as I haven't got response from freebsd-x11 maintainers. ]


We (VMware) would like to stop shipping our mouse and graphics drivers
for newer releases of X server as part of our VMware Tools distribution
and instead rely on versions of said drivers shipping with guest OSes.

Currently both xf86-input-vmmouse and xf86-video-vmware are part of the
ports tree but it would be helpful for the users if they were also
available on the installation media. Could you please tell me what is
needed to move the drivers in question there?
