Description Paul Vojta 2005-11-02 18:30:41 UTC
The log file says (in part):

    Before reporting bugs in pre-release versions please check the
    latest version in the X.Org "monolithic tree" CVS
    repository hosted at http://www.freedesktop.org/Software/xorg/

That url just gives you a "create this page" page.  If you remove the trailing
slash, then it would make more sense, but it would still be two or three clicks
away from the actual tree (depending on how you count).  It would be better just
to use the URL http://cvs.freedesktop.org/xorg/ or, perhaps better yet,
Comment 1 Alan Coopersmith 2005-11-05 09:53:20 UTC
Good point - will fix.   (Will also fix it not to tell people to look for the
Xorg monolith when building the modular.)
Comment 2 Alan Coopersmith 2005-11-05 10:59:53 UTC
Fixed in CVS HEAD - thanks for pointing this out:

  	Bug #4948: <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4948>
  	Incorrect URL in log file for Xorg CVS.   Also fixed wording of
  	statement to not refer to monolithic CVS since modular uses the
  	same code, so it was appearing in modular builds too.
