Radeonhd repo:

Very funny, but the person responsible forgot that maybe, this puts the 
whole trust in anything on fd.o at risk.

A look at the repo itself shows:

...xf86-video-radeonhd/objects$ ls -al 23/1683e2f111bb064125f64f2da797d744cde7fa
-r--r--r-- 1 root xorg 205 2010-11-01 21:22  23/1683e2f111bb064125f64f2da797d744cde7fa

This while others clearly show:

...xf86-video-radeonhd/objects$ ls -al 00/8cf170fe2f7d7c52bb691f77d2199a2e21f9d6
-r--r--r-- 1 mhopf xorg 596 2010-05-12 07:34 00/8cf170fe2f7d7c52bb691f77d2199a2e21f9d6

So, who has root access to annarchy or any other of the servers, and who 
thought this would be funny, and who deserves to lose his access right 
here, right now?
