Yes, we stopped including the packages that most desktops (GNOME, KDE, etc.)
provide their own versions of.   We still provide updates to most of them
in the individual directory.

Not anywhere on the X.Org site.   Someone else may have made one, and I suppose
we could add one with a bit of scripting, but no one has done so yet (I don't
remember it being requested/suggested before).
