    SubjectReworking the selection API and moving it to userspace (gpm)?

    About June 2001, in the era of 2.4.7 kernel, there occured a patch on LKML
    (by Salvador Eduardo Tropea <>), which improved the actual
    selection API of kernel to allow applications to get the content of the
    selection buffer etc. However, James Simmons said that he will be working on
    this for 2.5 and move it to userspace completely, reworking gpm.

    Nevertheless, I didn't saw a notice about this at all since then - there's no
    metion about this on linuxconsole's project homepage, in the 2.5 todo list nor
    anywhere else - and as I'm looking forward for this change a lot, I would like
    to ask if there's any movement in this issue. I would be even willing to help,
    if possible :).

    Kind regards,
