We now have the weston test suite under control and as promised,
here's the 1.0.3 release with those fixes:

    f71a3fb5b6534cce35ac7456a5fd540fc3806fc1  wayland-1.0.3.tar.xz
    ce1f41251a07600ed8c6b2e3dc1e868008aeb33a  wayland 1.0.3 tag

    583589cf7dd8f3300eef2bfb7b1968875a155e2a  weston-1.0.3.tar.xz
    b61f7d27738b73d27b03b8982b37ec78df52976e  weston 1.0.3 tag

Other than that, there's really nothing groundbreaking in this
release.  The test suite rewrite and fixes make up the bulk of the
weston changes along with a fistful of Coverity fixes from Rob.  The
wayland release has a couple of doc fixes and the test suite now
cleans up its temporary files.

With this we don't really have any major gaps or issues left with the
1.0 releases.  We may backport new features if the need arises or make
another release if we find a serious problem, but for now I don't have
any more 1.0.x releases scheduled.

The next major release will be 1.2 (since we're using 1.1 as the
unstable master version) and it's time to start planning for that.
Some of the things I'd like to get in shape for 1.2 are:

 - Jans IM + OSK work

 - XWM split out as a client

 - Remote rendering functionality

 - Subsurface / surface group

But we can jump into that next year... on that note: I'll be on
vacation for the next two weeks.  I might check in on IRC or the
mailing list, but don't expect me to any real work, like reviewing or
merging patches.

Happy holidays,
