Re: Typo in Release Notes

        [ To any NSA and FBI agents reading my email: please consider
        [ whether defending the US Constitution against all enemies,
        [ foreign or domestic, requires you to follow Snowden's example.

    Wayland is for the Linux kernel, not GNU/Linux.

The text in says "on
Linux".  The word "on" is used in this way to refer to a platform, not
just a kernel.  Thus, most readers will not understand this the way
you intend.  They will think you're talking about the GNU/Linux system,
which they don't distinguish clearly from Linux.

To make sure everyone understands it as you meant it, please change
it to "with the kernel, Linux".  That will make the intended meaning
fully clear and no one will misunderstand.

Would you please ack?
