Title: Multitouch input layer from X.Org Server 1.10 for opensuse 11.4

openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: jimbo bigcreed (dimble_thricefoon)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
A request for the multi-touch support to be included in opensuse 11.4
via Multi-Pointer-X, due to be rolled into X.org Server 1.10 in mid
February 2011.
Ubuntu are also trying to include this but are concerned, as I imagine
the opensuse devs will be, by the scheduled release date being so close
to distro deadlines for their spring release.
However, if it is not possible to include 1.10 would it be possible to
do what Ubuntu have discussed, and back-port the entire input layer
from X.Org Server 1.10 into their 1.9 build so they can have the latest
multi (http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=ODcyMg#) -
touch work.
* Thu, Jan 20 2011, openSUSE 11.4 Milestone 6 release
* Thu, Feb 10 2011, openSUSE 11.4 RC 1 release
* Fri, Feb 25 2011, openSUSE 11.4 RC 2 release
* Thu, Mar 03 2011, openSUSE 11.4 Goldmaster
* Thu, Mar 10 2011, openSUSE 11.4 Public Release

looks like X Input 2.1 multi-touch functionality is complete, but won't
be merged in time to make x.server 1.10 anyway:
 
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=ODc4NA
 
however, the developer does say:
 
""The xserver source code is essentially 1.9 plus a backport of the X
input ABI 12 work. I believe it should be trivial to rebase the xserver
patches on top of master, and I will likely do so after the merge
window closes for 1.10 on Dec 1st.""
 
so the opportuntiy exists to have multi-touch functionality at least
enabled in opensuse 11.4 and ubuntu 11.04.............
 
so how about opensuse devs, can we have it please? :)

this might also be very handy for Smeegol.

+ might also be very relevant for the opensuse ARM openfate request.
