The problem with this policy is it assumes people read bug mail.  If I
read all my bug mail every day, I would get absolutely nothing else
accomplished.

So, just to head this off ahead of time:  Every package owned by
xgl-maint that I know of has cvsextras+ set.  If there's a trivial bug
in one of these packages, please, by all means, fix it.  If you find an
X package where this is not the case, please let me know.

I'll even go one step further.  If you're sufficiently interested in X
and/or Mesa and _want_ to sign up for the xgl-maint mail deluge, please
let me know!  I'd totally love you forever.
