Subject: Requesting XFree86 beta membership

If you want to request membership on the XFree86 Beta Test team (or
one of its subteams), DO NOT SEND MAIL TO AN xxx-request ADDRESS.  All
membership requests MUST be send to

The XFree86 mailing lists are not traditional mailing lists.  They are
fora for discussion involving XFree86 development, and are only available
to those working on the project.  These are not general-information lists.

In addition to the general Beta-Tester team (to which all participants belong),
the following sub-teams exist currently:

        - Accelerated Servers
        - SCO Unix port
        - Cirrus driver development

The SCO and Cirrus teams will likely disappear after 1.3, as we expect both
of these projects to be in 1.3.  The Accelerated Server subteam will probably
persist for quite a while; at least until 2.0.

We have only two requirements for beta-testers:

        1) That you be active, in terms of testing/debugging/coding/discussing,
           etc.  This team is not for people who are only looking for early
           access to the code.
        2) You must have anonymous FTP access, as that is how the software
           distributions are done.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
