Indeed, X documentation is sparse everywhere.

We've been trying to collect some information in our wiki page [0]. But mostly
there are related with development [1]. Wikipedia's articles are very nice 
either [2] (maybe these pages are overlapping something though). DRI guys have
done a better job and organized some docs [3]. There's also some documentation
in our repositories [4]. Besides this all, there's some sparse papers on the
Web, such X protocol, keithp's, jim gettys, others.

Therefore, if you want to help, I'd suggest you to start collect them all,
set up a wiki page at, and let it with a nice presentation to
people start to in fact use such page (yes it's important!).

Thanks for worrying,
