- - how does clients move their surfaces? set a full tri-mesh every
- time? probably just go back to x and y position, let the compositor
- do the fancy stuff. How does the server apply transformations to a
- surface behind the clients back? (wobbly, minimize, zoom) Maybe
- wobble is client side?
+Core wayland protocol
+ - implement glyph cache and dnd
- - when a surface is the size of the screen and on top, we can set the
+ - dnd, figure out large object transfer: through wayland protocol or
+ pass an fd through the compositor to the other client and let them
+ sort it out?
+
+ - copy-n-paste, store data in server (only one mime-type available)
+ or do X style (content mime-type negotiation, but data goes away
+ when client quits).
+
+ - protocol for setting the cursor image
+
+ - should we have a mechanism to attach surface to cursor for
+ guaranteed non-laggy drag?
+
+ - drawing cursors, moving them, cursor themes, attaching surfaces
+ to cursors. How do you change cursors when you mouse over a
+ text field if you don't have subwindows? This is what we do: a
+ client can set a cursor for a surface and wayland will set that
+ on enter and revert to default on leave
+
+ - Discard buffer, as in "wayland discarded your buffer, it's no
+ longer visible, you can stop updating it now.", reattach, as in "oh
+ hey, I'm about to show your buffer that I threw away, what was it
+ again?". for wayland system compositor vt switcing, for example,
+ to be able to throw away the surfaces in the session we're
+ switching away from. for minimized windows that we don't want live
+ thumb nails for. etc.
+
+ - Move/resize protocols? In the style of the dnd protocol, if a
+ surface has grabbed an input, it can request a resize (top/bottom |
+ left/right) or a move. Goes on for duration of grab or until
+ surface cancels. Surface gets resize(w,h) during resize events and
+ must reallocate buffer and redraw.
+
+ - Initial surface placement issue.
+
+ - Consolidate drm buffer upload with a create_buffer request, returns
+ buffer object we can use in surface.attach, cache.upload and
+ input.attach? Will increase object id usage significantly, each
+ buffer swap allocates and throws away a new id. Does consolidate
+ the details of a buffer very nicely though.
+
+ compositor.create_buffer(new_id, visual, name, stride, width, height)
+
+ surface.attach(buffer)
+
+ cache.upload(buffer, x, y, width, height)
+
+ input.set_cursor(buffer, hotspot_x, hotspot_y)
+
+ Doesn't increase id usage too much, can keep buffers around.
+
+ - Move/resize protocol in the style of the dnd protocol: a surface
+ who has a grabbed device can send a request to initiate a
+ resize(top/bottom+rigth/left) or a move. The compositor will then
+ resize or move the window and take into account windows, panels and
+ screen edges and constrain and snap the motion accordingly. As the
+ cursor moves, the compositor sends resize or move (maybe not move
+ events?) events to the app, which responds by attaching a new
+ surface at the new size (optionally, reducing the allocated space
+ to satisfy aspect ratio or resize increments).
+
+ - Initial placement of surfaces. Guess we can do, 1)
+ surface-relative (menus), 2) pointer-relative (tooltips and
+ right-click menus) or 3) server-decides (all other top-levels).
+
+ - When a surface is the size of the screen and on top, we can set the
scanout buffer to that surface directly. Like compiz unredirect
top-level window feature. Except it won't have any protocol state
side-effects and the client that owns the surface won't know. We
lose control of updates. Should work well for X server root window
- under wayland.
+ under wayland. Should be possible for yuv overlays as well.
- what about cursors then? maybe use hw cursors if the cursor
satisfies hw limitations (64x64, only one cursor), switch to
composited cursors if not.
+ - clients needs to allocate the surface to be suitable for
+ scanout, which they can do whenever they go fullscreen.

- - pixman-drm; move the ddx driver batchbuffer logic into libdrm

+ - Range protocol may not be sufficient... if a server cycles through

+ we hand out a range of 256 IDs to each new clients, we're just
+ talking about 2^24 clients. That's 31 years with a new client
+ every minute... Maybe just use bigger ranges, then it's feasible
+ to track and garbage collect them when a client dies.
+
+ - Add protocol to let applications specify the effective/logical
+ surface rectangle, that is, the edge of the window, ignoring drop
+ shadows and other padding. The compositor needs this for snapping
+ and constraining window motion. Also, maybe communicate the opaque
+ region of the window (or just a conservative, simple estimate), to
+ let the compositor reduce overdraw.
