    There’s no need for 1.21.0

    Xwayland fixes can go into 1.20.x

        display servers are hard. look at wayland, almost 11 years and hasn't replaced xorg yet. and wayland has a lot of development behind it. along with millions poured into it by companies like red hat. if you're going to fork you need a massive movement to follow. like when xfree86 got forked to xorg. nearly all the development team behind xfree went to xorg. there's just no reason to fork xorg atm. especially when a sizable chunk of the community has a hate hard-on for xorg.

                Only for Red Hat, but Red Hat is not everyone.

                  Then some other people need to come and maintain it then.

                    Wayland is just a protocol fyi.

                    and Wayland-compatible display servers largely has replaced Xorg, Debian, RHEL, Fedora, SUSE all default to Wayland on GNOME. The amount that's required to implement an X Server is much greater than a Wayland compositor. X you have to maintain decades of crappy protocols and drawing APIs.
