Dear Xorg Developers,

I'd like to know what is the future of Xephyr and Kdriver from your point of
view. Will you still need someone maintain Xephyr? I am willing to maintain it
if needed.

If Xephyr is not in your future, I will stop the Xephyr development. Currently
with DRI2 extension, Xephyr fully supports window, while GlXPixmap is not
supported. For detailed information, you could refer to which is a
design document co-written with Robert Bragg.
