Re: Tablet support status (or, hitting jackpot with freeze break requests)

I want to avoid all risks of regressions in X11 (this means the second

in the impossible position of having to pick between working tablet
support in Wayland and whatever feature or application they were using
on X and that for any reason fails on Wayland.

I understand your concerns, I would like to push at least for the
first option though, of the 3 late changes mentioned above, it would
only imply the "new UI" one (there's no dropped driver, nor loss of
configurability, we just shift the "applies configuration" role to
mutter), it allows us to declare tablet support complete and in full
parity in this cycle on both x11/wayland, and makes the remaining
changes for 3.24 mostly an implementation detail (switching from one
driver to another in x11).

Going for the second option will still involve changes in g-s-d, so
regressions aren't entirely impossible, and implies maintaining 2
codebases doing very similar things.

ok then, but 3.21.91 is scheduled for next week, all things need to be
in place and released for it.

(this still requires another release team approval)
