        respond to the ping request, or in what timeframe. Clients should
        try to respond in a reasonable amount of time.

        A compositor is free to ping in any way it wants, but a client must

  <interface name="xdg_surface" version="1">
    <description summary="A desktop window">
      An interface that may be implemented by a wl_surface, for
      implementations that provide a desktop-style user interface.

      It provides requests to treat surfaces like windows, allowing to set
      properties like maximized, fullscreen, minimized, and to move and resize
      them, and associate metadata like title and app id.

      The client must call wl_surface.commit on the corresponding wl_surface
      for the xdg_surface state to take effect. Prior to committing the new
      state, it can set up initial configuration, such as maximizing or setting
      a window geometry.

      Even without attaching a buffer the compositor must respond to initial
      committed configuration, for instance sending a configure event with
      expected window geometry if the client maximized its surface during
      initialization.

      For a surface to be mapped by the compositor the client must have
      committed both an xdg_surface state and a buffer.

	The app ID identifies the general class of applications to which
	the surface belongs. The compositor can use this to group multiple
	surfaces together, or to determine how to launch a new application.

	For D-Bus activatable applications, the app ID is used as the D-Bus
	service name.

	The compositor shell will try to group application surfaces together
	by their app ID.  As a best practice, it is suggested to select app
	ID's that match the basename of the application's .desktop file.
	For example, "org.freedesktop.FooViewer" where the .desktop file is
	"org.freedesktop.FooViewer.desktop".

	See the desktop-entry specification [0] for more details on
	application identifiers and how they relate to well-known D-Bus
	names and .desktop files.

        This request asks the compositor to pop up such a window menu at
        the given position, relative to the local surface coordinates of
        the parent surface. There are no guarantees as to what menu items
        the window menu contains.

	The server may ignore move requests depending on the state of

	If triggered, the surface will lose the focus of the device
	(wl_pointer, wl_touch, etc) used for the move. It is up to the

	This request must be used in response to some sort of user action

	serial is used to determine the type of interactive resize (touch,
	pointer, etc).

	The server may ignore resize requests depending on the state of
	the surface (e.g. fullscreen or maximized).

	If triggered, the client will receive configure events with the
	"resize" state enum value and the expected sizes. See the "resize"
	enum value for more details about what is required. The client
	must also acknowledge configure events using "ack_configure". After
	the resize is completed, the client will receive another "configure"
	event without the resize state.

	If triggered, the surface also will lose the focus of the device
	(wl_pointer, wl_touch, etc) used for the resize. It is up to the
	compositor to visually indicate that the resize is taking place,
	such as updating a pointer cursor, during the resize. There is no
	guarantee that the device focus will return when the resize is
	completed.

	The edges parameter specifies how the surface should be resized,
	and is one of the values of the resize_edge enum. The compositor
	may use this information to update the surface position for
	example when dragging the top left corner. The compositor may also
	use this information to adapt its behavior, e.g. choose an
	appropriate cursor image.

        The different state values used on the surface. This is designed for
        state values like maximized, fullscreen. It is paired with the
        configure event to ensure that both the client and the compositor
        setting the state can be synchronized.

        States set in this way are double-buffered. They will get applied on
        the next commit.

        Desktop environments may extend this enum by taking up a range of
        values and documenting the range they chose in this description.
        They are not required to document the values for the range that they
        chose. Ideally, any good extensions from a desktop environment should
        make its way into standardization into this enum.

        The current reserved ranges are:

        0x0000 - 0x0FFF: xdg-shell core values, documented below.
        0x1000 - 0x1FFF: GNOME

	The configure event asks the client to resize its surface or to

	The width and height arguments specify a hint to the window
	about how its surface should be resized in window geometry
	coordinates. See set_window_geometry.

	If the width or height arguments are zero, it means the client
	should decide its own window dimension. This may happen when the
	compositor need to configure the state of the surface but doesn't
	have any information about any previous or expected dimension.

	The states listed in the event specify how the width/height
	arguments should be interpreted, and possibly how it should be
	drawn.

	Clients should arrange their surface for the new size and
	states, and then send a ack_configure request with the serial
	sent in this configure event at some point before committing
	the new surface.

	If the client receives multiple configure events before it
        can respond to one, it is free to discard all but the last
        event it received.

        When a configure event is received, if a client commits the
        surface in response to the configure event, then the client
        must make an ack_configure request sometime before the commit
        request, passing along the serial of the configure event.

        For instance, the compositor might use this information to move
        a surface to the top left only when the client has drawn itself
        for the maximized or fullscreen state.

        If the client receives multiple configure events before it
        can respond to one, it only has to ack the last configure event.

        A client is not required to commit immediately after sending
        an ack_configure request - it may even ack_configure several times
        before its next surface commit.

        The compositor expects that the most recently received
        ack_configure request at the time of a commit indicates which
        configure event the client is responding to.

      <description summary="set the new window geometry">
        The window geometry of a window is its "visible bounds" from the
        user's perspective. Client-side decorations often have invisible
        portions like drop-shadows which should be ignored for the
        purposes of aligning, placing and constraining windows.

        The window geometry is double buffered, and will be applied at the
        time wl_surface.commit of the corresponding wl_surface is called.

        Once the window geometry of the surface is set once, it is not
        possible to unset it, and it will remain the same until
        set_window_geometry is called again, even if a new subsurface or
        buffer is attached.

        If never set, the value is the full bounds of the surface,
        including any subsurfaces. This updates dynamically on every
        commit. This unset mode is meant for extremely simple clients.

        If responding to a configure event, the window geometry in here
        must respect the sizing negotiations specified by the states in
        the configure event.

        The arguments are given in the surface local coordinate space of
        the wl_surface associated with this xdg_surface.

        The width and height must be greater than zero.

        Maximize the surface.

        After requesting that the surface should be maximized, the compositor
        will respond by emitting a configure event with the "maximized" state
        and the required window geometry. The client should then update its
        content, drawing it in a maximized state, i.e. without shadow or other
        decoration outside of the window geometry. The client must also
        acknowledge the configure when committing the new content (see
        ack_configure).

        It is up to the compositor to decide how and where to maximize the
        surface, for example which output and what region of the screen should
        be used.

        If the surface was already maximized, the compositor will still emit
        a configure event with the "maximized" state.

        After requesting that the surface should be unmaximized, the compositor
        will respond by emitting a configure event without the "maximized"
        state. If available, the compositor will include the window geometry
        dimensions the window had prior to being maximized in the configure
        request. The client must then update its content, drawing it in a
        regular state, i.e. potentially with shadow, etc. The client must also
        acknowledge the configure when committing the new content (see
        ack_configure).

        It is up to the compositor to position the surface after it was
        unmaximized; usually the position the surface had before maximizing, if
        applicable.

        If the surface was already not maximized, the compositor will still

  <interface name="xdg_popup" version="1">
    <description summary="short-lived, popup surfaces for menus">
      A popup surface is a short-lived, temporary surface that can be
      used to implement menus. It takes an explicit grab on the surface
      that will be dismissed when the user dismisses the popup. This can
      be done by the user clicking outside the surface, using the keyboard,
      or even locking the screen through closing the lid or a timeout.

      When the popup is dismissed, a popup_done event will be sent out,
      and at the same time the surface will be unmapped. The xdg_popup
      object is now inert and cannot be reactivated, so clients should
      destroy it. Explicitly destroying the xdg_popup object will also
      dismiss the popup and unmap the surface.

      Clients will receive events for all their surfaces during this
      grab (which is an "owner-events" grab in X11 parlance). This is
      done so that users can navigate through submenus and other
      "nested" popup windows without having to dismiss the topmost
      popup.

      Clients that want to dismiss the popup when another surface of
      their own is clicked should dismiss the popup using the destroy
      request.

      The parent surface must have either an xdg_surface or xdg_popup
      role.

      Specifying an xdg_popup for the parent means that the popups are
      nested, with this popup now being the topmost popup. Nested
      popups must be destroyed in the reverse order they were created
      in, e.g. the only popup you are allowed to destroy at all times
      is the topmost one.

      If there is an existing popup when creating a new popup, the
      parent must be the current topmost popup.

      A parent surface must be mapped before the new popup is mapped.

      When compositors choose to dismiss a popup, they will likely
      dismiss every nested popup as well. When a compositor dismisses
      popups, it will follow the same dismissing order as required
      from the client.

      The x and y arguments passed when creating the popup object specify
      where the top left of the popup should be placed, relative to the
      local surface coordinates of the parent surface. See
      xdg_shell.get_xdg_popup.

      The client must call wl_surface.commit on the corresponding wl_surface
      for the xdg_popup state to take effect.

      For a surface to be mapped by the compositor the client must have
      committed both the xdg_popup state and a buffer.
