We have seen many good things come from the session management
development process. LADI is the most advanced implementation for
session management that has been achieved so far.
There have been a consistent set of procedures applied in all the above
projects and in many cases the issues that the session management people
have encountered have been consistent the main exception being the lack
of consensus by the community on which approach makes the most sense.
As has been stated before many times, the standard model established
over the years in LAD has required one or two highly motivated people to
push forward with their vision and also take on the wider community with
a forceful and intense defense of their direction.
Nedko has chosen to work with dbus and has provided a very flexible
system built on that decision. However his approach is not acceptable
for all use cases. Afaict there is very little interest from parties
that disagree with the dbus approach to enhance the LADI toolset in a
way that makes it more flexible for their use and vision.
One major item of note is that qjackctl now has preliminary dbus support
even though Rui has stated that it would not happen. This step in itself
should be clear a major roadblock to LADI integration and deployment.
