Maybe this can be mitigated with proper scoping and expiration of these DNS entries. But we're still ways off a proper widely-supported DNS update protocol.

Hm, not super thrilled about TLS Encrypted Client Hello requiring the public key to be published to the DNS... We'll really end up with ACME clients that *need* write access to the DNS zone.

The new NVIDIA patches for hw-accelerated Xwayland only use standard APIs (DMA-BUFs), stop using EGLStreams. This still doesn't address the buffer allocation issue, but is a step forward!

I think something important which distinguishes a prolific FOSS contributor from someone who isn't, in the context of marketable skills, is the ability to quickly dive into a new codebase and familiarize yourself with it enough to be productive. Many of the FOSS developers I know can be writing useful patches within hours or even tens of minutes of their first exposure to a codebase.

If someone's wondering what's the right kernel tree to use when writing amdgpu patches:

git remote add agd5f git://
git checkout agd5f/drm-next

I always forget it when I stop working on amdgpu for a while.

Started a wiki page about VRR setups and issues w/ Sway:

If you happen to have a VRR screen, feel free to add an entry!

It turns out sending a closed FD via XCB doesn't fail. The other side (X.Org server) just receives a random FD number, which I think by chance referred to an unrelated FD which was opened.

But why was I sending a closed FD via XCB in the first place? It turns out sending a FD via XCB also closes it. So it worked fine the first time, and caused the bug the second time.
