Description Michael Catanzaro 2020-11-04 13:13:43 PST
Goal: get Fedora down to zero downstream patches. With bug #217989 landed, only one left:

wpe_loader_init() tries to dlopen a development symlink, but these will not usually be installed. It only works in the GNOME flatpak runtime because we don't use devel split rules in the GNOME runtime, but we really ought to, and freedesktop-sdk already does, so it's going to break upstream too once that gets implemented. It's easier for everyone if we tackle this now. Since all major distros except Arch Linux use devel split, this patch is really required for almost every distro to use WPE renderer.

There are some more ambitious ideas in https://github.com/WebPlatformForEmbedded/libwpe/issues/59, but that's been open for over a year now, so let's please do this in the meantime.
