Of course. Answering questions like what does "Not using 
default mode "1280x1024" (vrefresh out of range)" or "height 
too large for virtual size" mean is to difficult.

Have had a look at my last mail (MacMini)? All bugs that 
prevent me from get it running are in xserver/hw/xfree86/mode 
or xserver/hw/xfree86/common

I spent much time but if logging/documentation is so useless 
you can spend hundreds of hours.

I was not talking about wiki (where login is imho unnecessary 
but acceptable). I was talking about the documentation of xorg.conf.

I think Xorg is not some project of 1000. Most graphical ui 
at linux depend on Xorg/XFree86.

Of course I sent it to the mailing list, even without your 
suggestion would have done this. But I think this mail is 
also ignored like the others before.
