This package is intended for bleeding edge testing purposes, and isn't really suitable for daily use yet. It's more meant for tracking the ongoing progress of adapting upstream labwc to bleeding edge wlroots git, which hasn't seen a release yet. For best usability, either pick wlroots stable for labwc, or pick sway-git for wlroots-git, since that's the one compositor that tries most closely to track updates to wlroots.

I only suggest tracking these if you're interested in verifying whether a bug is related to labwc, or stable wlroots, since upstream wlroots will often ask if you can reproduce an issue against git master, and sway-git is really the only compositor ready for testing that right now. This package compiles, but the runtime environment isn't really comfortable for daily use yet. I will add further notices if the tracking PR progresses to the point of usability.
