Hello Andi,

Many people release there code as X11/LGPL but the project
at http://rewind.sourceforge.net/ is for the most part dead!

If the tree was kept upto date and X11 patches were merged in
I could see why some would want to keep a reference to it, but its just
not that way. So in reality all were doing by providing this reference
is sending people to two year old code that is missing *many* X11
patches that have been sent to wine-patches.

Are there any upto date, maintained X11 projects?
I don't know of any, so........


Who feels his patch is correct.
