The plan to migrate wlroots to gitlab.freedesktop.org is now in motion! We'll migrate next week.
Current status: chasing a bug in this amdgpu function 😭
Note, this policy isn't against NVIDIA specifically, but against all proprietary drivers.
If it works, good for you. If it doesn't work, you're on your own. (We still accept patches, if they're not workarounds.)
We're routinely sending patches to upstream and downstream projects like the kernel drivers, Mesa, GTK, Firefox, etc. This is only possible because they're open-source software.
I want to re-iterate that just because NVIDIA supports GBM doesn't mean wlroots will officially support NVIDIA.
I welcome NVIDIA's move of implementing the standard APIs, it's a nice step forward. However, it's still closed source. That means not only developers are forced to install closed source software on their machine, but also that they work with a black box.
It doesn't handle multiple build manifests, nor mirror build logs. But that's planned.
The goal is to migrate Wayland-related projects to FreeDesktop's GitLab.
I had a bug where sending "a", "!", ":", or "🐸" as an input event to Chromium would work, but sending "é", "#", or "α" would not.
The FCM integration is disgusting, but:
- At least it's encrypted…
- Pretty much required to end up with a consensus on the spec I'm afraid.
