Description Jay Berkenbilt 2002-04-05 15:24:31 EST
Description of Problem:

Xnest and Xvfb are both X servers that are not tied to any specific hardware by
design.  They are in the group "User Interfaces/X Hardware Support" with the
other X servers, but I think they really belong in "User Interfaces/X" with
things like vncserver.  This is relevant mostly during installation when
selecting individual packages.  Of course, no functionality is affected here,
but it would be a trivial change to make.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


Presumably this still holds in skipjack-beta2, but I haven't finished
downloading it yet to check. :-)

Sounds sensible.  I've made the change in my current devel tree.  Will
appear in future release down the line.
