I was thinking about porting wayland/weston to OpenWrt for a while.
Now I finally searched for that I saw that it has already been done!
I love it when that happens, reaching a goal with no efforts involved :)
Thank you Oskari for rpi-openwrt!
What about merging the weston and related packages to a new package feed,
openwrt-display or something like that?
I could do testing on x86, other interesting targets could be xburst
and jz4xxx stuff (are there DRM/DRI drivers?), omap, msm, exynos, ...

The old x11 feed seems rather unmaintained and wayland/weston makes lots
more sense on embedded targets. Combine it with EFL and it becomes really
useful, just like Tizen 3.0 does. There are lots of useful things there
(such as the Dialer, Media Player, ...) just the build and packaging system
is quite frustrating and bloated if you are used to OpenWrt...

I highly doubt that I'm the only person in the world who can get the picture
by now. Anyone intersted in cutting the cake?
