    Which version of Wayland are they going to package?
    I am not trolling, simply planning to use Ubuntu with Wayland+Gnome if this is an available option.

      That was Debian unstable.

        My super quick search found the Debian Unstable has Weston (1.3.0-1). I think Wayland and Weston have similar numbering, right? So Wayland 1.3, the newest release.

        I wonder if we'll see any Ubuntu-spins with Wayland/Weston this cycle.

          Ubuntu 14.04 LTS will stick with GNOME 3.8 and GTK+ 3.8 from what it looks like right now (discussion was early October), so this won't work anyway.

            Gnome Ubuntu could provide their own ppa as part of the release. They might take that route.

              It would be great if one of these package updates ended up being for cryptsetup. Saucy still uses 1.4.3, which doesn't support TrueCrypt containers.

                Yes, at least for now Wayland And Weston are kept in lock-step since they are released together

                  Ubuntu Trusty is now syncing from Debian unstable
                  So the LTS releases are not based on Testing anymore? Why?

                    Bug report filed here:

                    Log in and let them know it effects you. Right now, 14.04 is still on 1.4.3, which kind of sucks seeing as Debian has been on 1.6.1 since June.
