NAME
       X.Org, XProjectTeam - X.Org Group information

SYNOPSIS
       Release 6.5 and 6.6 of X Version 11 was brought to you by The X.Org Group.  Release 6.4 of
       X Version 11 was brought to you by The X Project Team.

DESCRIPTION
       The Open Group's X Project Team was created as the successor to the  X  Consortium,  Inc.,
       after  the  X  Consortium  ceased  operations and transferred ownership of X11 to The Open
       Group. The X.Org Group (hereinafter called "X.Org") was created as the successor to The	X
       Project	Team after the The Open Group ceased operating The X Project Team. The purpose of
       X.Org was to foster development, evolution, and maintenance of the X Window System.  X.Org
       operates under the corporate umbrella of The Open Group.

       The  X  Consortium was an independent, not-for-profit Delaware membership corporation.  It
       was formed in 1993 as the successor to the MIT X Consortium.

       The X Window System was created in the mid-1980s at the Massachusetts Institute	of  Tech-
       nology.	 In  1988,  MIT  formed  a  member-funded consortium to provide the technical and
       administrative leadership necessary to support further development of the X Window System.
       In 1992, MIT and the membership decided it was in their best interests to move the consor-
       tium out of MIT and create an independent, stand-alone organization.  All rights to the	X
       Window  System were assigned by MIT to X Consortium, Inc. on January 1, 1994.  On December
       31, 1996 the X Consortium, Inc.	closed its doors and all rights to the	X  Window  System
       were assigned to The Open Group.
