- I read too fast, indeed. But as far as I know, mir failed to replace wayland as Xorg successor.
Like upstart failed to replace sysVinit.
Adding wayland support to mir is like trying to put a dog's head on a cat's body.
Anyway, statement was not 100% clear to me and to some other people. We'll see.Jun 28, 2017
- Mir wasn't only a display server. It was also a compositor manager. They want to take that compositor and make it work with wayland. Also Yunit team is trying to do that.Jun 28, 2017
- So, Mir was both a Wayland "killer" in Canonical point of view and a replacement for Compiz ?
Well, good luck to adapt mir code to wayland one :DJun 28, 2017
- Don't forget MIR is still under Ubuntu CLA and I think that will have legal problems in the future if Ubuntu shareholders ended selling Ubuntu to a not-so-friendly company.
Als Is not MIR or the Ubuntu CLA force code to be GPL3? well I once contribute code to Mate and I state here that I'm againt a licence change to GPL3.Jun 28, 2017
- I was wondering about the CLA as well.Jun 28, 2017
- The people behind Elementary have no problems using it. Are they super skilled and you’re not?
Don't forget that Canonical’s projects don’t use the “or any later version” clause. Should there be a (L)GPLv4, that code with be incompatible.Jun 30, 2017
- I'd advise you tone down the insults and research Mutter itself in relation to the needs of the MATE desktop. At the most fundamental level Mutter does not expose support for panel positioning or strut reservation on Wayand, nor arbitrary window placement for blessed windows, which is everything that mate-panel would actually need to be useful.Jun 30, 2017
