    I simply picked the first file.

    Did you even look at the directory listing?

        Wayland support was commited long ago, so unless somebody invented time travel there is only one conclusion.
        That and the copyright header…

            Everybody know Wayland is a protocol and Mir a display server.
            Still Mir requires to sign a CLA before committing while Wayland does not. So how is that trolling by him?

              Have I badly misunderstood or does this mean Mir will not support DRI3 ever? I recall having read that it was designed with client-allocated buffers in mind.

                With Wayland, deciding where the allocation happens is up to the compositor, not the protocol. You can as well do server side allocation in Wayland, if you want and your compositor supports it.

                  I believe Jolla has already proven Canonical wrong by running Wayland on top of ARM, unless Canonical is willing to eventually run Mir on top of Android itself.

                    Just a reminder (with a liiiiiitle bit of trolling) that GPLv3 + CLA is better than the MIT license.
                    Thank you for reading this. With love, Anna

                    [edit:] It would be funny to see Mir implementing the wayland protocol

                      What would be funny about it?

                          They're going to server-allocate the shit out of those buffers. They'll server-allocate them so hard.
