Comment (by fo):
Replying to [comment:9 Krejzi]:
OK. Again, I think we are agreeing in all points, with a small difference.
> First of all, Wayland is a protocol that is being developed to replace X
Window System in the future. It's not quite ready, but it's mostly usable
for some GTK+3, Qt5 and Efl based apps.
Wayland: I only went once to see their page when someone wrote about it in
the list (I thought you did, but apparently I am wrong). After that, it is
appearing in some pages of the book: libva, mesalib, clutter, gtk+3, cogl,
cairo, gst-plugins-bad. That is the reason I mentioned it, even knowing
that is still being developed. And the other one I do not remember the
name is that from Canonical.
> As for a word "lie", it is important why it's between " ". It simply
isn't true that for most of the packages I listed entire Xorg is required
(not true -> "lie" -> word play).
Again, I completely agree, as I wrote before. Perhaps you thought I was
saying the contrary.
> In reply to comment 4,
> I don't think you really want to list X window system for every package.
I believe that a note on Xorg Libraries page will be enough, as I
mentioned at the end of comment 6, in the same fashion as the note on the
Clutter page saying that working DRI setup is required.
No, I do not want, but I do not care. Again, agreeing with you. That is
another reason I thought that Igor should be the one deciding, and it is
OK with me, if he wants.
I think that the only difference between our opinions is that you really
would prefer X not being listed. Although I would prefer to leave the book
as is, it is no problem at all for me if Igor and Chris want them listed
and do so, and gave a suggestion.
So, I think we two are in peace, about this.
And thanks for the list you gave, I was thinking about that, to produce a
discussion similar as the one you did (though not at the same high level
as yours) but did not find a way to create it so fast as you did, and
asked Chris, who is the one proposing the modifications, to do it.
