RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Jiri Koten 2018-06-27 14:51:03 UTC
Description of problem:
Gnome classic mode is the default session in rhel7, but is available only on Xorg. Since Wayland is now the default display server in rhel8, we should provide classic mode also on Wayland.

Users who upgrade from rhel7 should have the same user experience in rhel8 with Wayland as the default display server.

Comment 1 Ondrej Hudlicky 2018-08-15 13:01:42 UTC
Related (lack of accessibility support of Wayland): 
Is accessibility support expected by customers to be part of Gnome classic mode? 
Should accessibility support be in default display server mode? 
What is impact on Section 508 and Accessibility Compliance?

see related bug about staying on Xorg for upgrades bug 1612915
