Sorry, but what is actually proposed here? The above sentence for me
doesn't make any sense(¹), as Gnome 3.12 is able to run on Wayland
already (not perfectly, but it works afaik), so it was ported already
I'd say.

Is this about integrating this work in Fedora? Or more porting work? Or
even make Wayland the default in F21? The section "How To Test" sounds
as if the later is the case, but it's not entirely clear to me.


(¹) This is not the first change proposal where the summary or the
"Detailed Description" is more confusing then helpful to me (which makes
me write this mail). It afaics would help a lot if those areas would use
words that ordinary people (think of people that have only basic
computer skills here) would be able to understand.
