    77       Xpra acts as an X11 compositor, and uses many different X APIs and features to achieve its purpose. We have run into some limitations related to X11 features.\\
    8        For example, Xpra has to be able to dynamically adapt the remote (server-side) virtual framebuffer to match the client configuration. This is not feasible on-the-fly even with xf86-video-dummy, so an improvement in this area is needed - ability to change the resolution, and DPI, on the fly. There also are some tearing issues when using Xpra, because of seemingly incorrect use of VSync. Someone interested in the world of X.org may be interested in this project. All changes will have to be incorporated in upstream X.org.
