This metapackage provides the components for a standalone
workstation running the X Window System.  It provides the X libraries, an X
server, a set of fonts, and a group of basic X clients and utilities.
Higher level metapackages, such as those for desktop environments, can
depend on this package and simplify their dependencies.
It should be noted that a package providing x-window-manager should also
be installed to ensure a comfortable X experience.

[ Didier Roche ]
* 60x11-common_xdg_path:
- protect against multiple additions of the same paths to
XDG_CONFIG_DIRS and XDG_DATA_DIRS, resulting to duplication on
consecutive logout/logins due to older session hanging in and env
being reused.
Some consequences is that electron application crashes (LP: #1764355)
- remove readdition of defaults if XDG_CONFIG_DIRS isn't empty to respect
user's selection (same logic than wayland session).

* xserver-xorg now Recommends xserver-xorg-legacy, we'd have liked to avoid
installing the setuid Xorg wrapper by default in stretch, but this seems
to break too much still (closes: #861683).
