    Nobody cares about tablet support.

    I feel like some people don't understand that this is a blocker for making it default, i.e. applicable to everyone. I mean seriously, you can still choose wayland manually once in GDM and it will remember to always open wayland for you... it's been this way for a while.

    Minor yes. Still it is important to do the considerations to quality and keep things testable. Fedora and Gnome have quality standards you know... If you want untested and untestable code thrown against the wall you need to look for other desktops.

    That list is surprisingly small... on-screen keyboard just needs to figure out how to interface uinput with libinput (easy to do on console and interfacing with evdev for X) was a stackexchange question about this here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3...-with-libinput (unanswered though... )

    Tablet support well.. that's what I'd like to say too! I think Libinput already mostly supports tablets (both for drawing and those handheld thing'majugs) but the biggest problem is that there is no configuration front-end available for the supported devices (unless you are on X) btw I have found out that input drivers can to an extent work through xorg-wayland, according to xdotool anyways (which does) which could potentially be used to temporarily bypass this issue. The problem with it is that it cannot use some wayland native shortcuts (like alt+f4) which invoke wayland commands.

    Positioning chooser... I don't know what that even means... but sounds easy.

    I guess the biggest issue is accessibilty features, but looks like most of them are completed, or halfway there. (Let's forget about that XRandR thing, that is a BAD idea)

    ​Yes it's been fixed, was a bug in Xwayland.

    Most users don't care about this stuff, there's no need to bother them with it. The ones who do care can manually select Wayland at the login screen.

    Looks like attracting mobile touchable screens only. Desktop key issues seem being already solved.

    One of the red hat guys was also working on FIrefox support. Has he merged his stuff upstream?

    Just to be clear, these are discussions about wacom tablets. Fairly popular.
