Description Kevin E. Martin 2004-07-30 22:03:27 UTC
Jim requested that a bug be entered and assigned to him for adding documentation
to the release notes (and other relevent places) to describe the issue of how
file permissions on certain directories can lead to a DoS and the platform
specific solutions to resolve this problem.

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.

I don't think this is a release blocker, and it doesn't appear to have any interest by the originator.
