Weston description

I would like to revert this change you made: Also the change on the Wayland page:

Reason: While upstream has changed the description, the Wiki should IMHO use a neutral and descriptive formulation. The new formulation sounds like advertising. The old formulation "Weston is the reference implementation of a Wayland compositor." is simply a good way to say, that Weston is the reference provided by the Wayland devs themselves.

The "reference implementation" wording was removed upstream specifically because it's misleading. Feel free to replace it with something else, but please avoid "reference implementation", because it's an historical artifact and no longer true.

Thx for the answer, I did not know that.
A wording like "official compositor by the Wayland developers" would be ok or also misleading?
My latest status was that weston had the most implemented features etc.

No, that would be misleading. It's not official, it's by some but not all Wayland developers, it's missing a lot of features.

Ok. In that case I am probably the wrong person to edit this :D.
But thx for the information.
