Over time I've hit a few bugs in Rawhide XFree86 that must be fixed upstream (at least that's what the RH bugzilla entries said). And now that XFree86 maintainers have been gently convinced to provide regular source code snapshots they'd like me to test if they fix my problems.
I'm a bit reluctant however to build an unpackaged XFree86 (blame previous encounters) so I'd really like to know if someone has a srpm or a spec file that works with the new XFree86 code drops (you know, like the experimental rpms mozilla.org used to provide).
I currently do not have a 4.3.99.x src.rpm, however I have been fairly slowly working on one for about a week. I don't have a lot of time to devote to it for about 2-3 weeks, so while waiting for a build to compile and whatnot, I've been test building 4.3.99.x on another machine and getting rid of patches one at a time that are no longer needed. The bigger part of the work will be forward porting patches that are still needed, and isolating small pieces of patches that are mostly unneeded, but which a few bits are still needed.
