Update about Brainstorm | lex naturalis - txwikinger's blog

Update about Brainstorm | lex naturalis - txwikinger's blog | txwikinger-ubuntu | Scoop.it

As can be read from Jono's blog, Brainstorm has basically effectively been discontinued. It strikes odd, that this decision was made seemingly so rapidly, and it seems without a lot of community input, despite it was a community tool.

Of particular interest seems to be the reasons given for retiring this tool.

I read a list post thread tonight that saddened me. I won't say what community it is part of, or point out the participants, because it is far too common in many of our community meeting places, whether they be lists, IRC or forums.

The Problem of Sunsetting Ubuntu Brainstorm | lex naturalis - txwikinger's blog

The Problem of Sunsetting Ubuntu Brainstorm | lex naturalis - txwikinger's blog | txwikinger-ubuntu | Scoop.it

Yesterday, it has been suggested to sunset Ubuntu brainstorm. While the arguments on the surface make a lot of sense, a bigger problem seem to be not as much in the focus of the discussion as they maybe should be.

Ubuntu is in a tremendous danger of losing what is understood to be a "community" distribution. Well, community in the sense of a wider community that is substantially larger than Canonical (it can always be claimed Canonical as being a community :-))

Notes from Breakout sessions at Mataro Sessions II

KWin and Wayland on KubuntuDifferences between Wayland and Mir are minimal, only client vs server side buffer allocation, so no benefit from it for a desktop distrodri3000 is a project to make X do client side buffer allocatingKWin won't support Mir, (unless canonical wants to do it) it has no ABI stabilityKWin was working on Wayland suppport, now shifted effort to Qt 5 support before going back to Wayland work.KWin in 4.11 might work with Qt 5 but not for distros to useX wayland is a rootless X server used in both Wayland and Mir, no use for KWin which needs a rooted X server.wayland has libwaylandserver and libwaylandclient libraries, libwaylandclient for use in toolkits like Qt.current KWin architecture not fully planned but probably Weston as system compositor and KWin as client compositorworry that Canonical might havily patch mesa for Unity/Mir making Kwin/Weston break (more then it already is)Only Weston needed for LightDM then Kwin started same as currently by startkde (maybe a bit earlier in the script)Change to Wayland for Kubuntu about 14.10 or 15.04Wayland & Weston release every 3 months, KWin every 6 monthsUnity will have 1 binary equivalent to X, compiz and unityWeston can be run on X for testingcurrent thinking is to ensure Debian's Weston packages are in Ubuntu archive and use those for Kubuntu, might make ubuntu-desktop and kubuntu-desktop not easily co-installableInstaller ubiquity-dm a tricky point
