Is anyone maintaining Nicosia scrolling code?

# Simon Fraser (a day ago)

There’s a bunch of code in Source/WebCore/page/scrolling/nicosia/ that I keep breaking with scrolling tree refactoring. Most of it it stubs. Is anyone maintaining this code, because it obviously doesn’t work, and I’d like to remove the maintenance burden.

I added the stubs there, and was planning to start adding actual implementations there in the following weeks, now that a new release cycle was just entered.

I wouldn't mind disabling or removing the code temporarily in order to enable you an easier time refactoring around it. But given that the async scrolling capability is something we plan to add support for in the WPE and GTK ports, I'd appreciate some input about the scope and the timeframe of your work and possibility of sharing as much of the implementation as possible between different ports.
