With that said, the idea that Wayland is completely divorced from the RedHat monoculture is absurd when I consider recent comments that have been made by RedHat employees, including those that contribute to Xorg development. If these people had no involvement with Wayland, they would not care enough to make these comments.
With that said, I would like a world where people can start open source projects in conflict with existing projects without any harassment for it. The response that the mere act of doing something different provokes in the open source community is childish. If you do not like what these guys are writing, either use something that you do like or write your own software.

eudev = Mir
systemd = Wayland
(obviously, not literally but in terms of having some parallels(?) -> for sure).
EDIT: I would even go further and say that there needs to be a complete udev replacement... It really wasnt that long ago when I was using a static dev that was far easier to use and maintain than what udev allows. Udev by its fundamental nature is broken POS that does -NOT- work and is is -NOT- adequate.

again, your taking it from a different angle.EDIT: I would even go further and say that there needs to be a complete udev replacement...

myself, i am quite happy using Systemd, it works great. it's easy to configure and better than anything i could use, imo. but to each their own.
It was daniel's who commented that Red Hat had not direct involvement in Wayland though, so I am taking that from him. He should know though.
http://linuxplumbersconf.org/ocw/users/73Kristian Høgsberg is working at Red Hat on the Linux graphics stack including drm, mesa, X, cairo and more. The recent couple of years Kristian has been focused on clearing out the roadblocks that prevent us from enabling a composited Linux desktop by default. Towards this goal he has been instrumental in implementing AIGLX, which has allowed compiz and other compositing managers to run on X, and DRI2, which integrates accelerated OpenGL with the COMPOSITE extension. Recent developments in the Linux graphics stack has led Kristian to wonder whether X is our ideal window system.
I know that Kristian is no longer at Red Hat, but his Wayland proposal for the plumber's conference was published when he was at Red Hat.
