Hi Victor,

now that we have turned merge requests on for libwayland, I think we
have pretty much reached the state you wish for.

When wayland-protocols gets its gitlab.fd.o repository, I expect most
of protocol development to happen there, leaving the wayland-devel@
mailing list essentially for announcements and questions.

Would that be good for you? You probably need to set up your filters to
look at some additional headers.

Oh, and libinput. I guess libinput has moved to Gitlab merge requests
too, at least they have it enabled. Libinput might still use
wayland-devel@ for annoucements and questions.

One has to start somewhere, you are welcome. :-)
