    Phoronix: Canonical Posts X.Org, Driver Patches For XMir

    Canonical last week posted 15 patches so Mesa could support their Mir Display Server and specifically the Mir EGL platform. Those patches haven't received many comments from upstream Mesa developers, but there were more than 200 comments in our forums. Over the night, Canonical has posted X.Org Server patches for supporting XMir plus the open-source driver patches so it can handle XMir with nested compositing...

    Hope the patches get rejected by the Xorg team.

    X.org team?

    You mean Mesa team, X.org team, and then each FLOSS drivers teams?

    Mesa patches did not recived input as of now.

    But both X.org and FLOSS drivers teams (minux Nouveau, but those where sent only recently) replaied with some CONSTRUCTIVE feedback. And why sholdn't they? Mir is another possible back end for Xorg. FLOSS drivers also do not mind adding another supported platform. Mesa is OS agnostic really (though main effort is Linux)..

    There is also some possible coop effort with Wayland crew on supporting code in all those projects. (Though Christopher Rogers who is behind all that code, stated that shared code will most probably include only minor issues).

    This is missing too much functionality to be usefully appiled, but the
    skeleton is here and the APIs it relies on are sufficiently stable. Sending
    to the list for extra visibility and for preliminary comments.

    i don't get how they're saying any thing is "stable" when it's not even Developed....

    What's the political landscape with Xorg with regards to Mir? Who decides whether these patches are accepted upstream? And are they likely to accept them?

    Why shouldn't they? They accepted patches for Wayland so the only excuse for not accepting this (when they are fully done and polished) would be that they are dickheads but I don't think so.

    Let me put it this way...theres a lot of back and forth between the Wayland and X teams-- mostly because a lot, if not all, Wayland developers used to be X developers. So lets say you're being pulled between two projects, are you going to back your friends...or the new kid on the block that is throwing a temper tantrum because no one wants to play with him, because of previous temper tantrums?
