General X.org plans for Raring

Registered by Bryce Harrington on 2012-10-24

The biannual catch-all X discussion session. If you are involved in a project that directly depends on the X stack, or needs a particular feature from the stack, come along.

No specification will be written for this (any work significant enough to warrant a spec must be split out to separate blueprints). This blueprint will be used for tracking any stray work items that don't fit in elsewhere.

Whiteboard

* Versions expected:
  xserver 1.14
  mesa 9.whatever
  drivers (whatever's the latest when we pull the stack)
  wayland
  kernel 3.8
* Goals for raring
  + Nexus 7: tegra video, touch input, other sensors
  + Commercial gaming support
  + Hybrid graphics (low hanging fruit?)
  + SRU queue cleanup
  + SRU fixes for quantal/precise
* X swat TODO page
* Bug triage for raring bug reports
* Bug triage for LTS bug reports
* Nouveau stabilization
* X/mesa test automation
  - piglit autopkgtest
  - xit for xserver autopkgtest
  - snapshot comparisons of apitrace for new mesa
* Communtiy member mentoring
Daniel D'andranda (dandrader) knows the touch stack and gestures stack. He'd be the right contact person on touch problems.
