Re: xorg-x11-xkbdata, xkbdata, xkeyboard-config and you

This should resolve various keyboard quirks that have been reported
in different components throughout FC5 testing, but may introduce
a few new bugs too.  Overall, since it is the only maintained
xkbdata however, even if there are a few bumps, they'll be ironed
out via modular package updates easily enough, unlike the situation
we'd have if we shipped the X.Org xkbdata and let it rot.

Hope your keyboards all do the happy dance now.


Some backward compatible options were disabled in the
xorg-x11-xkbdata-1.0.1-5 build which contains xkeyboard-config.

This has caused some problems for various users, and has been
fixed in the 1.0.1-6 release.  If you are experiencing any problems
with the 1.0.1-5 release, before filing a bug report in bugzilla,
please update to the -6 release, which can be found at:

xorg-x11-xkbdata-1.0.1-6 is now available for download via ftp at the
following URL:  ftp://people.redhat.com/mharris/testing/unstable

After updating to -6, and restarting X, if you still have problems,
please search bugzilla to see if it has been reported already or not
(we get a lot of dupes for things like this, please help to limit
them), and if nobody's reported it yet, please file a new bug and
we'll go from there.

Thanks again to all the people testing FC5 development!
