this is not a robbery, only a regular X server branch switch, from
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:
