Hi all,

This might be more of a Wayland question than a Cairo question, but...

If I wanted to use Cairo to draw a raw Wayland client window,
what is the most efficient pathway?  For a CPU solution,
I could have Cairo draw to an in-memory RGB array and then
send the damaged part of that array to Wayland.

But if there to directly interoperate between Wayland and
Cairo?  Can I have both of them looking at the same EGL surface
or the same location in RAM or VRAM?
