XFree86.org: A Call For Open Governance Of X Development
XFree86 220.127.116.11 CVS Snapshot Released[ Thanks to error27 for this information. ]
David Dawes release manager of the XFree86 project announced that bi-weekly CVS snapshots are one of a number of changes the XFree86 project plans to implement in response to an email by Keith Packard calling for "Open Governance Of X Development".
Keith Packard's proposal would make the Board of Directors for the XFree86 project elected positions similar to the Gnome Foundataion Board of Directors. While many developers do not agree with this proposal, they feel the issues he raises, especially the need to colaborate more with other projects such as Gnome and KDE, should be addressed.
Regular CVS snapshots are another way to inform and involve the community of open source developers and testers. As with all open source programs they come without any guarantee. The tar balls are available here.
