why isn't x.org part of lists.freedesktop.org (so archives are publicly available) and who was the freelancer who raised funds for doing development work on X.org

Dear Alan,

Thank you for getting back and sorry for not being able to respond.
Anyways, published the article at

I do have a suggestion though, it would be nice if there was a
dedicated corner for students to read up on what other students before
them. I do know about planet.freedesktop.org as I have been somewhat
of an old-time user of GNU/Linux and planet as well but many newbies
and especially students are unaware of them and even then the kind of
information that is received on planet is temporary in nature.

If possible, have a dedicated corner which has links to all and any
blog posts by students who were part of Xorg EVoC .

If there are any mistakes in the article please let me know and will edit them.

Looking forward to support X.org in its endeavours.
