Yep, that would help... let us know! :-)

Anyway, first of all, sorry for my spice/qxl ignorance.

What I just wanted to say is this: searching the wiki, all I found about
spice and QXL is this section in the QEMU Upstream page:

Perhaps someone of you can double check whether the information there is
still fresh and accurate enough? Perhaps it's also worth adding
references to the patches mentioned above (with the proper disclaimer
about the known issues, of course)?

Also, maybe for the next DocsDay, this would be a nice one to have too:

If keen on doing any of the above that involves modifying the wiki, send
me a note, and I think I can provide the necessary permissions.

Thanks and Regards,
