Jamey Sharp was talking about the future code-base of X.Org. This involves the possibility of merging the DDX (Device Dependent X) and DIX (Device Independent X) code, output hot-plugging, RandR GPU objects, and other work.

Matthias Hopf talked about recruiting new developers to X.Org and Mesa. He talked about Mesa being way behind in OpenGL support, the lacking of X documentation, the X.Org Board of Directors could use better marketing, existing developers are mostly employed long-term contributors, development on X/Mesa can be intimidating, and that X.Org could use better advertising.
