The commit message will be:

x11-servers/xorg-server: Update to 1.14

The X.Org server is updated to 1.14. The changes it brings are described
in a post on the Graphics team blog:
http://blogs.freebsdish.org/graphics/2014/11/19/xserver-1-14-update-ready/

The most noticable change is the DEVD input device autodetection backend
which is enabled by default, replacing the HAL backend. The keyboard
layout configuration must be migrated from HAL's .fdi files to X.Org
files. The procedure is explained in the post mentionned above.

Several ports are removed with this update, mainly because they are not
compatible with the X.Org server anymore:
    o  nvidia-driver-71
    o  nvidia-driver-96
    o  xf86-input-egalax
    o  xf86-video-newport
    o  xf86-video-tga

Looks pretty good.

I would in the actual commit message mention the people that spend time (in some cases loads!) on this.
So Erandir, dumbbell, ak and myself I think.

Maybe even mention that ak@ did a lot of work on the devd backend?

Yes, I forgot to specify the footer...
