I suppose that's fine with me, if somebody wants to do the work. Off the
top of my head:

- People in the xcb group on fd.o need to be added to the xorg group.

- After moving the repositories, symlinks from the old locations would
  be appreciated so old checkouts still work.

- I'd rather not merge the XCB wiki into the X.Org wiki, unless
  somebody's going to do a lot more maintenance on the X.Org wiki than
  I've yet seen and they want to take on XCB too.

- I don't think most XCB contributors want to see all the mail on
  xorg-devel, so I'm inclined to keep the separate mailing list as well.
  Although some of us are on both lists anyway, and perhaps nobody would
  mind merging?

I'd have a happier outlook on this plan if I thought fully merging the
projects would get more administrative support for both XCB and the rest
of X.Org from fd.o admins.
