A Tentative Schedule For XDS 2010
For those interested in the X Developers' Summit (XDS) that is taking place next week at a tobacco factory in France, a tentative schedule has now been published by Matthieu Herrb for the 50 or so people that will be participating in the summit.
The key sessions for the 2010 XDS include:
- X.Org foundation session
- Review of latest DRI2 protocol additions (i.e. sync and swap extensions)
- Documentation or: how a newbie got involved
- Development process recap (to the point of releasing on time)
- Multi-touch session (such as the multi-touch protocol specification)
- Gestures session (Canonical's X Gestures Extension)
- XCB session
- Xephyr future
- EGL in Mesa (including the ability to run Wayland from Mesa)
- Wacom input driver
- OpenGL - which functions can developers rely on?
- Kill it with fire? (what drivers should be deprecated)
- Non-Linux DRI/KMS support
- Handling input events: threads or not? (threaded inputs)
- X Server 1.10 planning (and whether to merge the drivers back into the X Server)
Though some of these sessions may not occur or be handled differently as Matthieu assumed everyone who made a proposal would be in attendance, but for instance AMD's John Bridgman will not be there for "OpenGL - which functions can developers rely on?"
There will be Phoronix coverage (along with audio/video recordings) of all of these X talks that are taking place right before the Phoronix Oktoberfest outing.
The latest XDS2010 schedule can be found on the Wiki in its latest form.
