Harold, Alex, and others. Can you take the time to really test the
current CVS and get patches in now.

Here's a quick status update regarding the 4.3.0 release.

With one or two exceptions, most of the submissions that came in before
the feature freeze have been integrated.  The remaining ones should be
done over the next week, and the next snapshot tagged (  Also,
the bug fixes submitted in the last few days should be reviewed and
integrated soon.

There have been some unavoidable delays related to a combination of
unresolved bugs, the Holidays, and day job commitments that some of us
have, so it's looks like the release date will slip by 2-3 weeks.

The current tentative schedule is:

   Last submission date for non-critical fixes    1 February 2003
   End of integration of non-critical fixes       5 February 2003
   Last submission date for documentation(*)     10 February 2003
   Last submission date for release notes        14 February 2003
   4.3.0 tagged for release                   15-16 February 2003
   4.3.0 available from ftp.xfree86.org          17 February 2003 snapshot tagged                   17-19 January 2003 (RC1) tagged                    25-26 January 2003
   other release candidates tagged as-needed

Note the usual disclaimers:  This is a tentative schedule only, and may
change without notice.  It's as accurate as I can make it, but don't
plan your life around it!  Most of the XFree86 release work is handled
by volunteers on their own time, and most of us have day jobs that have
to take priority over spare-time work like this.
