Re: Re: [edlug] XFree86 RIP



This was discussed on slashdot yesterday, it is only the core team are disbanding themselves and is akin to dismantling a committee. These people are a very small proportion of active developers and will presumably continue as developers. The nett effect is to remove a layer of beaurocracy which doesn't contribute and which has come under criticism for hindering development.

Xfree86 continues and this may even strenghten the project (not IMHO necessarily a good thing).

I can't find much discussion on the politics behind this move so I have 
to ask - where does this leave XFree86 development?
