You know, only a specific version of a package can be provided (neither is it a good practice to provide xorg-server 1.7 with 1.9) so a stupid "xorg-server=${pkgver}" is just fine.

As a sidenote, I shortend the "libgl included" make-/dependencies lines with ${(make)depends[*]} variable so that they include everything the "no-libgl" lines do. The downside is that the "Dependencies" list you see at this page screws up.. but who cares.

Maybe you should modify the "provides" entry as "xorg-server>=1.7.3" to allow xf86-video-intel-git to build with your package

The Nvidia driver 256.44 pre-release driver has been released. So if you are an Nvidia user and insist on using/toying/whatever with this package (xorg-server 1.9) you can either choose Nouveau or the proprietary Nvidia driver and the git versions of the (xf86-input-)mouse/keyboard drivers (can be found here in AUR).

For the (über) Evdev driver another Git package would need to be created but I don't think anybody cared even if I did it :).
