Wayland-protocol deps should all be dealt with as they happen. I
believe we have the policy to land changes in wayland-protocols first
and have a w-p release, and then land weston patches depending on them,
bumping the dependency on configure.ac at the same time. That's what
I've been doing anyway.
Unfortunately, we cannot do the same with libwayland since it would add
considerable delay in landing such weston patches.

None of the presentation-time changes after 1.2 and 1.3 change any
semantics, so no bump needed for them.

I looked through libwayland changes post-1.10 release, and the only ABI
change is the addition of the proxy wrappers, which is not used in
Weston. ABI additions are easy to spot by looking for changes to the
headers. It's unlikely to have other kind of changes, except perhaps
scanner.c generated code.
To keep things simpler, I would suggest we keep the all of
libweston-server, -client, and -cursor dependencies at the same number
in Weston. I'm not sure you even can build things from Weston without
both -server and -client. If you use both, they surely are the same
The client dependency may have been forgotten, and the server
dependency will hide any issues it might have.
Of course, whenever anyone sends a Weston patch that needs something
new from libwayland, the commit message should say so. Maybe we could
add a XXX comment in configure.ac also, like my weston patches do for
wayland-protocols before there is a wayland-protocols release?
