It's been a long time since I've done any reasonable work on X stuff, so it's also been a long time since I've blogged. But Julien and Brice* just finished off the major task of getting 7.4 in to unstable, and I've been trying to help out with some of the inevitable fallout from that. Overall, the transition has been relatively smooth, although we've had a few major classes of bugs that have popped up. Since dealing with the BTS is rather complicated and doesn't lend itself to simple summaries, I created this wiki page for the team to track the major classes of bugs currently plaguing unstable. This isn't meant to track every bug (that's what the BTS is for), but for major regressions or problems with new features, we'll be trying to use this page to give ourselves and users a way to easily see what's going on with some of the more recent problems. And yes, this does include the infamous hal depends bug, which we are currently discussing, and will deal with accordingly.
