Xorg badly needs to acquire new developers, but it takes several
months before a newbie can work on big tasks such as finishing
Xegl or adding EXA support to an existing driver.

Maybe a janitor project could help?  The regular Xorg developers
would have to invest some more of their time to help out their
padawans, though...
