So, what is this based on? Maybe I'm not looking in the right place, but
out of hundreds of changes in Git touching those files, I see one change
from you about six months ago and five changes with a Reviewed-by: tag
from you over a year ago. You didn't push any changes other than your
own either AFAICT.

Looking at all of Mesa yields a similar picture; that is why I
previously questioned your authority to NAK patches in Mesa.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not questioning your authority on all things
Wayland. Your review of Wayland related patches obviously carries a lot
of weight. But I'd expect to see a very different footprint in the Git
history from somebody who calls himself maintainer.
