+Today, the SPI Board unanimously voted to formally invite the X.Org
+Foundation to become an Associated Project. This vote has been a while in
+the making and we're proud that we're now on the home stretch.
+Joing SPI removes much of the legal and accounting administrative work from
+the X.Org Board, leaving us to focus on the things we should be doing:
+promoting X, Wayland, Open Graphics, organizing developer conferences and
+promoting graphics development through participation in coding programs
+(GSoC, OPW, EVoC).
