* Triaged 500 new bugs across various xorg packages. Resulted in being able to close several score as fixed, or invalid due to unavailable hardware.
* Sponsor queue 1 hr (mainly just cleanup/review)

Assigned release targeted bugs:
* 284346 "Fix dithering" [Fix Committed]. Cherrypicked patches from upstream for this, packaged, tested, and submitted as SRU.
* 274234 "CD_INVALID_OPCODE" [Fix Committed]. Fix for 284346 should also fix this one.
