1.5 will be tagged within the week.  However, discussing the future of xsrc
has zero relevance to 1.5's release date.

Many people are *anxiously* waiting on XF86 4 to be whipped into shape--and
asking people like _me_ (because I am in releng) about its status--so it's
very important to get questions like the following answered before anything
is actually done:

: : NO, we don't touch the old xfree 3.x tree.
: : Importing it under xsrc/xc is out of question.
: : 
: : When we import the 4.x one we have to use a different path name for it.
: Why not?  Branches are designed to handle this type of situation.  It allows
: for direct diffing of files and the like.  I don't see what a different path
: buys us (other than "doofus factor").
