The first RC for X server 1.8.1 is now available. Current plans indicate
that there's one more before the final release. Last merge day for patch
requests to go into RC2 is Monday May 3. Please get your patches ready and
into master by then.

This RC has a whole lot of fixes from master, and they are all over the
board. The most notable change for distributors is that the server now
supports two configuration directories, one for distribution-specific
snippets and one for custom snippets installed by the user.
The pkg-config file for the server provides the variable "sysconfigdir" for
the former to allow customisation for different distributions.

Rest of the changes are all over the board but at this point I'd like to
remind everyone - if you want a patch in 1.8.1, please let me know to make
sure it doesn't get lost. I'm not picking up everything from master,
especially those areas I don't know too well are simply ignored by me.
