Thanks for doing this!
For the wayland building sheet, the actual building steps are pretty
similar from the ones on the wiki page. I guess we could emphasize there
though, a bit more how to circumvent that eglInitialize error; I have
myself forgot to install xcb-dri2 and xcb-fixes and seen also some guys
on #wayland channel falling into the same problems. Maybe you want to
help writing a patch for the wiki page?
The root permission errors are a bit tricky. We will most definitely
want to use a launcher root program that gives the permissions for the
fd, set tty, and switch to a normal user. I prototyped something here:
About the other document you wrote, that's quite cool as well. We might
want to drop some of what you've done in the implementation part of the
spec - which is not a specification only btw:
Then, you put together some information about the interfaces which could
also go in the spec document and some could go in the form of commentary
on the protocol .xml:
I hope understand our overall intention here, which is not to spread lot
of documents around but instead try to centralize them.
