Re: what about Xouvert??

I'm curious about that myself. Keith Packard seems to have started so many projects that it is difficult, as a casual observer, to determine where they overlap. His actions have been impressive, especially in the last year, both as an engineer and as an organizer. He seems to have the skills (check out the Xcredits on his resume) and the temperment to give the graphical underpinnings of OSSnix a much needed shot in the arm.
