Fedora Could Use Your Help Testing Wayland

FEDORA --
Fedora developers are hoping you'll help them test out the latest Fedora Workstation experience with GNOME atop a native Wayland experience.

For the Fedora 24 release next year they are hoping to ship Wayland by default for supported GPU/hardware systems. Fedora Rawhide recently went ahead and enabled the Wayland-based desktop by default.

There still are shortcomings to work through in ensuring the Wayland experience is at parity to the X11-based desktop, so the developers are hoping more people will go ahead and test the Wayland experience while there's still time to make adjustments. If you're willing to help out in testing Fedora Wayland, see this post at FedoraMagazine.org.
