I got these new font packages and although I saw the announcement, the
two mirrors I've tried do not have the updated xorg-server yet
(although they both have these updated font packages). Is there a way
to make a sub-version (1.17.2-4 for xorg-server, not 1.17.2-3 as is
listed below, contains the font path changes) a requirement? Would
have saved me a little bit of a headache this morning as well.
