    Isedonde ~half of vanvugt’s MRs get closed again. By himself.

    The very definition of an upstream is gate keeping against bad code or bad design.

    Linus T gets very vocal about bad code. The kernel even got 3-4 levels of reviews and integration trees before you see it in mainline.

    GNOME need some level of gate keeping too. And stalling vanvugt MRs is really needed.

      The lack of an official standard does not make GNOME a standard just because it is the most "finished" or most "independent".

        And speaking about quality of MRs. Vanvugt marked his latest MRs as work in progress. So any reviews would have been a waste of review bandwidth.

        Instead it looks like the ex-X hackers from Redhat now is ready to land this important work on mutter.

          You should really not talk about code quality or any other topic you don't understand.

            Are you serious? I always thought that thing was C. What part is Javascript? (Never used Gnome)

                  A lot of the "logic" is in Javascript, but the rendering is done in C.

                  The Javascript really just tells the C code what to do. Animations for the most part are being done by code written in C.

                    starshipeleven You are really funny

                    Anyone who cares can go to GNOME’s Gitlab and look it up.

                    Tons of work from all major distributors

                      Don't give the trolls any credit. When you consider the compositor 90% of Gnome is C: https://discourse.ubuntu.com/t/boost...tu-19-10/13095
