What is the necessary criteria for merging?

Works on 10 peoples graphics cards?

A successful upgrade path?

It's probably not feasible to get all the graphics drivers tested.

I'd like for someone with experience in the X branch to come up with a
list of criteria, maybe search the list history for issues people have
had upgrading, and then build a test plan, or a checklist to verify that
we won't have these issues on this upgrade.

Then once that passes, we'll merge it. Sound good?
