> Yes, it would be still good to fix bugs like https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=84034 and also the construction of input_method and input_method_context objects. I would also not mind to keep this protocol weston only for now.

Hi Jan Arne,

Thanks for the reviews but please ignore the text input related patches for now, I have better versions in my git repo. I don’t understand why the patches showed up on the mailing list, I sent them with the wrong email and withdrawn them before they were moderated.

Unfortunately I did not find time yet to port the weston-editor nor the auto tests to text input protocol version 2, so this will have to wait until then. I will make the patches available tomorrow in a separate git in case someone is interested.
