    wayland by itself is nothing. it's basically DRI on steroids. all rendering is directly from applications to the compositor. the hard work is porting the toolkits and WMs, not writing "wayland code". is mutter even wayland ready yet? i know gtk is basically done

    I'm fully aware of that. Want Phoronix to check for every project that had plans on supporting Wayland? I'm not taking the time of doing so.

    not really. but I often get the impression that people think that wayland needs a lot of work. not really. mesa, toolkits, cairo, WMs need lot of work. even the whole GDM/login issue thing is not resolved yet. wayland by itself is basically done.

    Roughly 1 million for the server, according to Ohloh. http://www.ohloh.net/p/xorg-server
    There are two repository entries though, so migth be that its actually ~500K
    2.5M for the whole project, though this also includes things that Wayland can/will make use of, like Mesa. http://www.ohloh.net/p/x
