I am not convinced that it makes sense to put this module set in Gnome
CVS, since the majority of X developers do not have access to Gnome CVS
so could not help with maintenance.

Jhbuild supports using URLs as module set names, so with the current
location of your module set file, you can write:

  moduleset = ''

Which will cause jhbuild to download the file locally, and ensure that
it stays up to date.

If you stored the file in Xorg CVS and set up a loginfo script that
performed an automatic checkout of the file to some location served by
the web server, any X developer would be able to help you keep the rules
up to date.
