    <description summary="weston internal debugging">
      This is a generic debugging interface for Weston internals, the global
      object advertized through wl_registry.

      WARNING: This interface by design allows a denial-of-service attack. It
34
      should not be offered in production, or proper authorization mechanisms
35 36 37 38 39 40 41
      must be enforced.

      The idea is for a client to provide a file descriptor that the server
      uses for printing debug information. The server uses the file
      descriptor in blocking writes mode, which exposes the denial-of-service
      risk. The blocking mode is necessary to ensure all debug messages can
      be easily printed in place. It also ensures message ordering if a
42
      client subscribes to more than one debug stream.

      The available debugging features depend on the server.

      A debug stream can be one-shot where the server prints the requested
      information and then closes it, or continuous where server keeps on
      printing until the client stops it. Or anything in between.
