Wayland is getting close to being ready for day 2 day generic desktop use, close but there still are many small issues to tackle, see e.g. :

The purpose of this microconference is to get people together to discuss the various open issues, try to come up with solutions for some of them and possibly implement some of them.

Expected audience

Anyone who is present at plumbers and is interested in furthering Wayland support.

Expected Topics:
-Discussion about allowing apps run by other users to connect through Wayland, e.g. apps run by sudo
-Should apps (games) be able to change the monitor resolution, should this be a Wayland protocol extension or a portal
-Getting the compositor out of the way for fullscreen games (unredirect support)
-Unified API for monitor configuration à la xrandr to allow commandline configuration of monitor settings?
-More to be added based on CfP for this microconference

Possible speakers/participants which I know plan to be present at plumbers are Alberto Ruiz, Benjamin Berg, Christian Kellner and me.

I also expect Benjamin and or Christian to be willing to co-host the Microconf with me, but I still need to ask them.

I agree to abide by the anti-harassment policy Yes
