What is the X Strike Force?
The X Strike Force is a team of Debian developers (not exclusively package maintainers) who are dedicated to at least three goals:
- identifying and fixing bugs in the Debian X.Org packages
- enhancing the functionality of the Debian X.Org packages
- developing and drafting policy proposals to create a consistent, powerful, and easy-to-use foundation upon which maintainers of other packages, such as X clients, can build
- This list is for the discussion and support of the X Window System within Debian. Issues of maintenance and porting of Debian's XFree86 packages are germane here, as are discussions of possible Debian policy mechanisms for ensuring the smooth interoperation of packages that use the X Window System, particularly widget sets, desktop environments, window managers, display managers, and packages that provide fonts for the X Window System. In particular, individuals involved with building official Debian XFree86 packages for any architecture are invited to join, as are those with various graphics hardware who seek to reproduce and/or fix bugs in the X server. This is not a user support list; this list is intended for those who deal with the source code of any of the X Window System components mentioned above.
