Re: working on a bigger proposal

But you mean work only on Wayland, or on Wayland as well as xorg?

That question has different answers, depending on what you mean.

Support for X applications is not going away.

The Intel team is fairly confident that they can keep X and Wayland
working in parallel in mutter, so we should be able to have a 3.10
gnome-shell release that lets you try Wayland, but still defaults to
using X underneath. I'm not so sure we want to maintain two code paths
indefinitely, though

For scattered other X dependencies in the stack, I think it will be
hard to keep parallel code paths working, so certain things may stop
working under X when they get ported to Wayland.

The wiki has some more details.
