    nice to know it maybe SDL too a lot of steam games on Xorg you have to reset the input to the mouse

    Well for the testing done here on Phoronix that might be true.
    However where the code stands I don't know.
    XWayland may be closer to completion in how much time it needs.

    What's true is however that it doesn?t matter.
    The only thing that matters is that XMir needs to be be "done
    enough" by 13.10 and that XWayland needs to be "done enough"
    whenever someone are about to use that.

    At the current stage both are in development and none is done.

    That is running an entire X desktop environment on XMir. XWayland was not designed to do this because it is stupid, pointless, and can only make things worse. What XWayland lets you do, but XMir does not yet, is run X11 applications in a native Wayland session (something that does not even exist for Mir yet in any useful sense).

    As the point of XMir and XWayland is to provide a compability fallback for X apps under Mir/Wayland i would say NO XMir is absolutely USELESS in this regard while XWayland has bugs but kinda works.

    Well, that too. But the main part is about being interested. The truth is that the number of votes has little significance when deciding what will be moved to [community], probably the only really significant part is that a TU can move a package to [community] without asking for consent if it has more > 10 votes and it is not one of the problematic packages (see TU Guidelines for details).

The other thing is that we usually do not introduce VCS packages in [community] or any other official repository. The exception is when the VCS version is way better and stable than a stable version, but the only package that is from VCS that I can think of right now is mplayer.

    Can you stop and actually read what people wrote before replying(?), seriously. You are getting fricking' annoying.... "We" don't have to do anything... I use nVidia currently, so i wouldn't be voting for this package anyway (since i'm not using it). If you use Archlinux + Intel + Wayland and thus, that package - then please feel free to voe for it. Other than that, sftu about it...

    As it's already been explained; This package doesn't belong in Arch's Official Repositories...and likely won't be included, until X.org version is released with it's inclusion appears in the repos...and even then, it wil end up in [Extra] repo and not [Community] repo....so stop going on about how it needs to be moved into [Community], since that is pointless to begin with.

    Why do you need it to be moved to the comunity repo?
    It's perfectly usable from the AUR.

    There are even tools to install then with exactly the same
    CLI as pacman, all compiling and dependency getting are
    done automatically.

    However I can't remember the name of any right now as it
    were too long ago I used Arch.
