It is easy to be misinformed when one reads "mission statements" rather
The freedesktop.org XLibs release appears to be under the same
copyrights as pre-fuckup XFree, certainly no GPL in sight.
Ditto the new Xserver project:
(it lacks a top-level license file, but a random survey of CVS files all
had similar MIT-style licenses)
