X.Org Members Approve Becoming Part Of The SPI Organization
After last year's vote failed for the X.Org Foundation to merge with the SPI due to not reaching the two-thirds quorum to change the by-laws, this year was a success: 61 of the 65 members voted.
The X.Org Foundation currently has 65 active members (including your's truly) with 54 of them voting in favor of the by-laws change while four voted against and three abstained. These results were just published on the X.Org members list.
The SPI now will be able to help X.Org particularly when it comes to legal and managing finances. If you are unfamiliar with the whole X.Org + SPI topic, see the many SPI articles I've written related to the matter.
Besides voting to now become part of the SPI, elected to the board this year were Egbert Eich, Alex Deucher, Keith Packard, and Bryce Harrington. There are four open seats annually while there were five X.Org members aiming to become Board of Directors this year.
