We're planning on uploading xserver 1.16 to unstable.

Currently all drivers in main, except for xf86-video-glamo, build fine against
the new xserver. xf86-video-glamo fails to build but has patches on the BTS.

I haven't tried to rebuild the drivers in non-free. Please check those.

While we have tested the new xserver, we have limited hardware and haven't
tested most drivers. So please give your driver some testing against the new

We plan to upload the xserver next week. We will binNMU the drivers that can be
rebuilt unless you say you want to do a sourceful upload for some reason. The
packages that don't get support for the new xserver promptly may need to be
removed from testing (I'm mostly thinking about the drivers in non-free).
