[ANNOUNCE] xorg-server 1.7.1

The first stable update to the X server 1.7 is now available.

The main chunk since RC2 are some XACE fixes, the rest are assorted fixes
all over the place. As you can tell, there's still a fair flow of patches
coming for 1.7, so expect a few more 1.7.x updates. At this point, we're
also quite close to master so many of the commits go into both branches.

1.7.2 is scheduled 5 weeks from today, with the snapshots after 2 and 4
weeks unless some other reason forces us to release sooner.

Please remember to nominate your patches for 1.7 either by letting me know
over IRC/email or by shoving it into the server-1.7-nominations branch.
