State of the foundation

Merging with SPI, including Wayland and Mesa under the umbrella

The state of the FLOSS graphics stack is rapidly changing and so is the foundation. We are currently working on merging with SPI to get rid of the bureaucracy that goes along with having the non-profit association status in the USA (501(c)(3)). Since we are changing our legal status, it is also grand-time for us to broaden our purpose beyond the X Windowing System. Projects like Mesa and Wayland have accepted to be placed under the foundation umbrella, it is time for us to make it clear that the foundation is not only about X anymore! This talk will also advise people to become members of the foundation in order to get a voice in this process.
