Hi Bryce,

cc'ing xorg-devel as well, see below, I would like to help with xwayland.

Sorry, I didn't realize xwayland was lagging behind.

I would like to help with this, if you agree.

I have already started looking for pending patches in patchwork for the past 6 months or so - Some patches are missing reviews, others haven't reached consensus, so I'll see what needs clarification first, try to revive discussion and prepare a tree for a pull request.
