+IRC, freenode, #hurd, 2012-03-18:
+ <antrik> Wayland should be very portable. all the system dependencies are
+ in the infrastructure, such as DRI
+ <antrik> we have had a DRI task (for X.Org) for years
+ <antrik> (in fact I would be the right person to implement this,
+ considering my background -- by quite frankly, I doubt I'll ever do it)
+ <tschwinge>
+IRC, freenode, #hurd, 2012-03-20:
+ <youlysses> Is wayland something that will be semi-easy to port to the
+ hurd? I saw GNOME is heading in this direction.
+ <pinotree> wayland at the moment is linux only
+ <tschwinge> youlysses: A DRI implementation will be needed.
+ <pinotree> that, and libdrm compiling
+ <youlysses> So it will take some work ... but theres no *HUGE* design
+ decison that would inhibit it?
+ <pinotree> i know it uses epoll, for instance
+ <tschwinge> youlysses: I cannot judge how complex a DRI system is, and how
+ much needs to be designed vs. implemented.
