New to-do item - configuration
Mon Dec 10 23:11:00 GMT 2001
I would suggest to make it as in the Linux if this is not more complicated
than via registry.
Arguments: the configuration will be in the same manner as everything rest
otherwise configuration via registry
would make the configuration process dissimilar.

Subject: New to-do item - configuration
after several requests, we should add the following point to the todo-list:
Implementation of a static configuration. Either as file as in the
Linux version Xfree86 or via the Windows registry.
The configuration should contain these points:
- Dimension and location of the window
- Fontpath configuration
- XKB configuration
- Other options (3 Button emulation,...)
The preferred format of the configuration file is the format of
XF86Config used by other XFree86 X-servers.
If a reuse of the configfile reader of XFree86 is not possible/
_very_ complicated I would not mind if we use a different format.
The registry variant would require a configuration program which
allows the user to adjust these values.
