After the update, you get the latest xserver branch, which at the time

You also get the latest xf86-video-wayland, which was renamed from



is there any reason to not have these up-to-date(?) branches in the
website, rather than the old 1.12 xserver versions?

What is the intended Weston compatibility here? Are Weston 1.3.1 and
master supposed to work with both xwayland and xwayland-1.12 branches
of xserver?

What about the various DDXes vs. xserver vs. weston?
I assume there is no direct dependence between the video DDXes and
