    Didn't know the X developers were so classy with their naming conventions.

    I'd like to see Valve put on the SteamOS website : powered by Golden Gaytime X

    Easy to answer: No. Maybe unofficially via COPR but no way as regular update.

    Default XWayland

    I would love to see XWayland merged.

    Would also like to see it possible to run X.org Server without root.

    Aha, as I reply to myself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Gaytime

    Apparently it is a brand of cookie in New Zealand. Still, given the times and current ussage of the word, I can't really see the justifications of using it for a release name of a major software project as it could be construed in a rather negative light.

    Pretty sure Keith is a native English speaker and was just enjoying summertime in Australia at LCA with a nice local ice cream treat.

    How will Wayland clients use GLAMOR if the upstream is merged into X.org? Or will Wayland clients not need Glamor?
