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	trans-
       ferred 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  af-
       ter 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 Con-
       sortium.

       The X Window System was created in the mid-1980s	at  the	 Massachusetts
       Institute  of  Technology.  In 1988, MIT	formed a member-funded consor-
       tium 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
       consortium  out of MIT and create an independent, stand-alone organiza-
       tion.  All rights to the	X Window System	were assigned by MIT to	X Con-
       sortium,	 Inc.  on January 1, 1994.  On December	31, 1996 the X Consor-
       tium, Inc.  closed its doors and	all rights to the X Window System were
       assigned	to The Open Group.
