Phoronix: XDC2012 Begins To Advance X.Org, Wayland, Mesa
The XDC2012 conference began today in Nürnberg where future improvements and other features for the X.Org Server, Wayland, Mesa, and other components are being discussed for the remainder of the week...
Sorry to ask again.
Any news about the GPU "BookSprint" which took place over the last two days?
I really want to see that great document to progress.

i am sure xorg could get a large number of donations from the user community if they asked (currently there is not even a donate button on the xorg website). especially if it was clear how it was being spent on speeding up development.
Does xorg need more money (inb4 who doesn't)?? I mean its at its dawn more or less and it has hackers payed by Red hat Intel etc when other project like mesa could use them more in a way.
xorg the foundation has a wider scope (and could perhaps sponsor) than just the xorg graphics server.
Correct, the X.Org Foundation sponsors events & student projects across the free software graphics stack, including Mesa, Wayland, graphics drivers, etc. If you look at the EVoC projects for instance, you'll see more have been at the Mesa layer than the X server itself.

The driver document was fleshed out in a number of areas, the text needs to be integrated & the document formatted - hopefully that won't take too long. The general X stack developer's guide from the prior book sprint also progressed to the point there's now a EPUB being tested on ebook readers and which should be posted shortly.
