    Phoronix: GNOME Will Move Full-Speed With Wayland Support

    We already know that KDE developers aren't fond of Mir, Canonical's display server for the Unity desktop not derived from X.Org and Wayland. KDE developers aren't happy about it, some Xfce developers have also expressed dissatisfaction with the recent Canonical changes, and now there's a GNOME response. What's GNOME doing about Mir? They're laying out plans right now to move hard and fast with Wayland support!..

    So we have one quote from the developer and nothing from the party accused?
    There has to be more to this than that. Got any more info lying around?

    Ubuntu wasn?t going to take my patches because they don?t want to take community patches on compiz anymore.

So basically this guy developed the last four months to contribute to Ubuntu, to make it actually better, although Canonical already knew that they won't accept his work anyways.

It happens even if they previously said they will support compiz. They changed their minds.
    Have you even read the article about that process? They didn't stop to accept his patches because they think that Compiz is good enough, they did stop because accepting patches from community developers is no longer part of their vision. they have this vision at least for 9 months, the time they secretly started to develop Mir, but just didn't care to tell that anyone.

    This is a behavior that really pisses of the community and although they state otherwise, Ubuntu would cease to exist without that community. Basically they cutted one of their legs because their head thinks "Hey, I am up here, what do I need legs for?" This will seriously backfire for Canonical, as you can see that more and more community projects simply don't want to support them anymore.

    But they did know it earlier, Feature Freeze for Pangalon was a good weak ago. So they knew that at least weeks earlier if not months. I think they just wanted to have all options as long as possible. So if they get not dont what they did work on, they could just stay on the compiz weagon for now. And then because they knew earlier that they will not use it, they just slept a few weeks just dont caring about the work this guy makes only for ubuntu.

    You realize that this was a community developer who did this in his free time, not some paid developer?
