Description Eric Williams 2017-12-12 20:46:08 UTC

In the description there are references to X -- AFAICT the selections API works on X and Wayland, and looking at the source code there is gdkselection-wayland.c.

Having X in the description makes it sound like this API only applies to X stuff which is a bit misleading.
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2017-12-13 16:15:49 UTC
The api is entirely patterened on X, which is why the docs sounds like that. Patches to improve this would be welcome.
Comment 2 Stefan Sauer (gstreamer, gtkdoc dev) 2017-12-18 10:34:43 UTC
This has nothing todo with the gtk-doc tool. Moving category.
