I find it inappropriate that you bash me publically in a CHANGELOG 
file entry. Especially since I have notified you about this by email 
(see below), explained why I have removed the credits stuff and asked 
you to create a separate file and put this information in there. 
This was merely because I don't have tools to deal with RTF
at hand and therefore couldn't make sure I didn't break anything.
I also wanted to avoid spending time to install such tools.

However if the release engineer is expected to have knowledge 
about RTF I may be the wrong person for this job.

Maybe I should discontinue my efforts on the Xorg tree to give 
you the chance to find a more capable person for this job.

Another problem I came accross when merging in 4.4:
You have added things to the Credits.rtf files which produced
conflicts. I seem to be unable to fix RTF by hand and test the
changes. Therefore I've reverted these files to the XFree86 version
and would like to ask you to create CreditsXorg.rtf files instead
to avoid future conflicts - as long as darwin stuff goes into
