Hi,

for the record, I personally will not be able to provide such Acked-by
tag according to kernel review rules, because I am completely unfamiliar
with kernel DRM internals and cannot review kernel code at all. This
might make people expecting Weston to prove their uAPI disappointed,
since there are very few Weston reviewers available.

If you meant something else, please word it to that you actually meant.


Thanks,
pq
