comment Which version of X introduced feature Y?
Use git-describe to find out tag is the closest to a specific commmit. Tags are used for version numbers mostly. As for Savannah being broken, you can't do much about it. Git clone the repository to your box and work your way using the git commands i described in the post.

@Mikel, @mattdm, yes the ChangeLog is automatically generated from git log messages since the switch to git, thus it will not bring anything more useful then git log.

comment How do I choose a graphics card for Linux?
Xorg is a fork of XFree86, thus some parts might still be relevant, thought lots of investigation would be needed in order to figure those parts out. My bottom recommendation would be to stick with one reviewed by phoronix since that is a guarantee it will work on a Linux system at maximum capacity, including direct rendering and 3d acceleration.

UML and QEMU is probably the way to go, since you can easily play with filesystems at no cost.
