Triage X Bugs of the Christmas Week (TXBW7)

For some reason1 bug #607242 did not make it to the debian-x@d.o mailing list, I got aware of it only by the message shirish sent to my blog.
If he didn’t write to me, this bug will have waited for what… about 3 years until I got all the 800+ bugs triaged ? So please you can help triaging X bugs, first subscribe to the debian-x mailing list so you can get the feeling of what to respond to some bugs, and join the TXBW effort ;)

  • #607242 reassign & give+ask moreinfo.
  • #403350 ping & try nouveau – xserver-xorg-video-nv: xset dpms force off does not turn off the backlight.
