NAME
       XStandards - X Consortium Standards and X Project Team Specifications

SYNOPSIS
       The major goal of the X Consortium was to promote cooperation within the computer industry
       in the creation of standard software interfaces at all layers in the X Window System envi-
       ronment.  The X Consortium produced standards - documents which defined network protocols,
       programming interfaces, and other aspects of the X environment.	These standards  continue
       to  exist in The Open Group's X Project Team releases.  The X Project Team produces speci-
       fications.  Like X Consortium Standards, these are documents which define  network  proto-
       cols,  programming interfaces, and other aspects of the X environment.  Under the aegis of
       The Open Group, X Consortium standards, X Project Team specifications, and other  specifi-
       cations are the basis for portions of The Open Group's various CAE specifications.

       The status of various standards, specifications, and the software in the X11R6.4 distribu-
       tion, is explained below.

NON STANDARDS
       The  X11R6.4  distribution contains sample implementations, not reference implementations.
       Although much of the code is believed to be correct, the code should be assumed to  be  in
       error wherever it conflicts with the specification.

       The  only  X  Consortium standards are the ones listed above.  No other documents, include
       files, or software in X11R6.4 carry special status within the X Consortium.  For  example,
       none of the following are standards: internal interfaces of the sample server; the MIT-SHM
       extension; the Athena Widget Set; the Xmu library; the Xau library; the RGB database;  the
       X  Locale  database; the fonts distributed with X11R6.4; the applications distributed with
       X11R6.4; the include files <X11/XWDFile.h>, <X11/Xfuncproto.h>, <X11/Xfuncs.h>,	<X11/Xos-
       defs.h>,  <X11/Xos.h>,  <X11/Xos_r.h>,  <X11/Xwinsock.h>, and <X11/Xthreads.h>; the bitmap
       files in <X11/bitmaps>.

       The Multi-Buffering extension was a draft standard of the X Consortium but has been super-
       seded by DBE as a standard.

X REGISTRY
       The X Consortium maintained a registry of certain X-related items, to aid in avoiding con-
       flicts and to aid in sharing of such items.

       The registry is published as part of the X Consortium software release.	The  latest  ver-
       sion  may  also be available by sending a message to xstuff@x.org.  The message can have a
       subject line and no body, or a single-line body and no subject, in either  case	the  line
       looking like:
	    send docs registry
       The X Registry and the names in it are not X Consortium standards.
