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 environment.  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 specifications.  Like X
       Consortium Standards, these are documents which define network
       protocols, 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 specifications 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 distribution, 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/Xosdefs.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       but has been superseded by DBE as a standard.

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

       The registry is published as part of the X Consortium software release.
       The latest version 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.
