WAYLAND --
Jonas Ådahl announced the formation this morning of the Wayland-Protocols Git repository that will march to its own beat, separate of Wayland/Weston releases.

The Wayland-Protocols Git repository will decouple the Wayland protocol development from the implementation in Weston and run by its own release schedule. This will allow developers more flexibility in adding/changing the Wayland protocol and now not enforcing that the new protocol be implemented immediately by Weston.

The Wayland Protocols repository currently contains the fullscreen shell, input method, Linux DMA-BUF, pointer gestures, text input, and XDG Shell protocols.

More details via the mailing list and the new Git repository lives here.
