No plans at the moment, but if you'd like to try and report back, please go ahead.

GNOME Mutter 3.29.1 Now Works With Elogind, Allows For Wayland On Non-Systemd Distros

https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=GNOME-Mutter-3.29.1

Mutter can now be built with elogind. That is the systemd-logind as its own standalone package. This in turn allows using Mutter with its native Wayland back-end on Linux distributions using init systems besides systemd.

Great, when can we expect your Gnome-mutter extension?
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

gnome-3.22 has been updated to gnome-3.28 in the 9.x x86_64 repo.

There are still a number of gnome applications to update, so some of the existing applications might not work - epiphany, gedit, gnome-terminal and nautilus all work though.

Cool, thanks, it's 3.28.2 even, so it has the fix for the big memory leak https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=GNOME-3.28.2-Released  :)-

The following extensions have been added/updated:

accountsservice, clutter, clutter-gst, clutter-gtk, cogl, dbus, elogind, gdm, gnome-session, linux-pam, mutter, polkit and shadow

..to allow gnome-session to work in wayland mode, which it now does by default.

Please read the elogind and gnome-session info files to see how to get started.

Note that, on an intel core-i7, gnome-session now takes 15s to start in wayland mode and 25s to start in X11 mode - as opposed to 5s previously - but, once started, it seems to work at the same speed as before.
