Default Re: nvidia and the wayland display server

Although I like the ideas behind Wayland, I'm wondering where one can
access the API documentation: on the official web-site, there's just a very
simplified architecture diagram and using a search engine didn't revealed
anything usefull for me. I understand that rendering is done using OpenGL
ES, but how to talk to the compositor (window placement and input handling)?
Where's the Wayland "hello world"? Doesn't seem to much out there ...

To be successful, I think Wayland should be much better documented.
The way it is right now, I can't imagine it will land in other distros, any
time soon.

Your mileage may vary.

regards

Bernhard
