Wayland is incomplete and only works with select few apps,
which is something you can do when configuring Fedora's
GNOME config. Been trying it once a year, and it doesn't
even solve tearing as well as xf86-video-intel's TearFree
has for years. One day Wayland will be stable and support
things we had in Xorg. It's premature to put it into RHEL,
but I suspect the developers have tested support for all
the commercial X11 apps places like Pixar use and how those
cope under XWayland.

I found Arcan (one man project) to work better, but that
one's in development.

By the way, gtk-list@ seems abandoned by the developers from what
I can tell. Maybe file a bugreport instead?
