Re: A little experiment: GNOME on wayland-only?

If you still want to preserve X11 support, these modules do need to keep linking to X11 components:

So our regular build has to continue to depend on X11 indefinitely, because we want to build flatpaks that work under X11. And distros certainly do as well, because they need to support X applications indefinitely. But I don't think our VM images necessarily need to support X applications. I suppose Javier's experiment is to see if we can get VM images working nicely without any X stuff at all. In this scenario, preserving X11 support is not needed.

Beyond that, AFAICT if other regular GNOME session services/apps indirectly rely on X11 at build/runtime, it's an oversight.

Well there is libgnomekbd. That seems like the main issue currently, as it's required for core desktop functionality but still doesn't work under Wayland. (It only works currently because it sets GDK_BACKEND=x11.)
