Other talk about Salix

With Xorg looking like it's about to become extinct and several groups already porting to Wayland, what are the plans for migrating Salix over to Wayland? Is this something we could accomplish individually? I know the folks at Enlightenment are working on the switch and we already have Enlightenment available in the repository. So what all would have to change to make the switch? I'm certain it wouldn't be a simple task. But would it require a ground-up rebuild? Or would it just be a matter of adding Wayland to the core instead of X and then changing the appropriate conf or rc files? I'm just curious.
Yeah, probably not in the next week or two But eventually it will disappear. Although my understanding is that really the only thing going away is the name. It's mostly Xorg developers working on Wayland and it's mostly just a major update and a lot of fixes that will break the backwards compatibility.
