    Default Wayland Is Not For End-Users In Ubuntu 12.04

    Phoronix: Wayland Is Not For End-Users In Ubuntu 12.04

    Two days ago I wrote about Wayland's Weston compositor landing in the Ubuntu 12.04 repository, which excited many Linux desktop users. However, for those thinking that Wayland/Weston is ready for end-users with next month's Ubuntu 12.04 LTS "Precise Pangolin", that is not the case...

    Default Where do I get started?

    You seem to know what needs to happen next:
    - More apps working on Wayland
    - Desktops & Browsers getting Wayland support

    So if a like-minded programmer (as many here are) want to lend a hand, where do we get started? What's the welcome place to jump in? Where's the (pseudo-)spec and the non-conformant app code that should be put together to get this rolling the fastest?
