this is not a robbery, only a regular X server branch switch, from 1.10 to 1.11. That means X drivers (for input and video) need to be rebuilt against the new server, which is happening through binNMUs. That also means the X stack from sid might be uninstallable for a few hours, but impatient people can still use the stack from wheezy in the meanwhile.

Please refrain from reporting uninstallability bugs. That’s expected, can’t be avoided, and only for a few hours (assuming no driver starts to Fail To Build From Source).

Many thanks to the following people, who joined the “let’s do a pre-upload crash test” effort:
