Description Hans de Goede 2013-04-12 14:22:35 UTC
Currently we are carrying a ton of patches for the new dynamic resolution and monitor support. For 6.5 we likely also want to fix bug 904082 and bug 904084 which means adding yet more patches.

Therefor I would like to rebase spice-vdagent to the latest upstream, which will bring in all the patches we are already carrying + fixes for bug 904082 and bug 904084.

The only thing it adds which we don't already have is client -> guest file transfer support (through drag and drop on the client window), which is something which we likely want to support soon anyways.
