    All of you should really read the blog article linked in the news. It contains an interesting list of FAQ and a lot of detail on why using logind and libinput.

      Honestly I think his article explained it much better than the FAQ. The latter was not necessary and a bit more confusing than his actual post...

            Doesn't really matter when all people are going to see is "ZOMG LOGIND IS A PART OF SYSTEMD WE ARE GOING TO HAVE SYSTEMD SHOVED DOWN OUR THROATS AND I REFUSE TO CHANGE SO I MUST PROTEST LIKE SOME WHINNY KID ON THE INTERWEBZ BECAUSE KDE SOLD OUT".

            On a saner note, I wonder how much longer till we get full Wayland support for the entire Linux graphical stack.

              We have Wayland running decently on Smart TVs, Raspberry Pi, IVI systems, etc.. So I'd worry more about DEs work.

              I'd say in something like a year we will be able to run a functional, production-use wayland environment in Gnome, E19 and Weston. Maybe we won't be able to use a whole set of apps for every task, but it'll be fine through XWayland in those cases.
              As for KDE, I believe it'll take more like two years to reach a functional point.
              Don't expect Xfce support to come before 3 years from now. First they need to port it to gtk3, and with their manpower that alone could take easily 2 years.
              LxQt plans are to use Kwin as the compositor so my guess is at least two years.
              There's no plans for Openbox nor the typical tiling WMs to support Wayland. But there are already shells from scratch for Weston like i3-way. No idea of the state of these as of now.
