Feature #12213: Wayland
Investigate Dogtail's long-term viability
We have multiple concerns about the long-term viability of using Dogtail:
- intrigeri heard a GUADEC speaker mention that dogtail does not work on Wayland. If that's indeed the case, then we should look into this problem before we keep porting tons of tests to dogtail: it would be a waste of time to do so only to have to port them to another technology again a year later.
- Fedora (and Redhat in general?) now uses openQA, which only supports image-based testing.
- Dogtail development has slowed down considerably since we adopted it. Here's the a number of commits per year breakdown:
2011: 4 2012: 52 2013: 25 2014: 27 2015: 13 2016: 41 2017: 9

- Type of work changed from Code to Communicate
Fuck. I'll try to get a clarification about
dogtail's status from the upstream (it seems they've moved from Fedora's infra to GitLab), and what the plans for Wayland are. Until then I'll suspend all my Dogtail work. :_(
