> Høgsberg replied that Wayland could add support for that as well, noting "I realize that this all isn't really documented, but it's not like Wayland only works with client side allocated buffers."
when a project makes a big point about how it uses client side buffers, and then doesn't document that this isn't the only way it works, it's not surprising that other people assume that it is.
I hope that someone is gathering all the undocumented things that wayland can do (and how to do them) that were incorrectly assumed to be impossible and is adding them to the wayland documentation.
for a project that is so loud on the need to break compatibility, it seems 'wrong' that they would take such offense at someone else breaking compatibility. It may be that one group or the other is headed into a dead-end, but to take the attitude that only they should be allowed to break compatibility is the height of arrogance.
