No idea what the official stance regarding Vulkan is, but to ensure
patches aren't "lost" it's a good idea to create an issue at
https://bugzilla.libsdl.org/ and attach the patch there.
I don't know why you didn't get feedback, but probably the relevant
people (Sam and Ryan mostly?) are just busy - and this mailing list
hasn't been very active in the last weeks, so don't worry, it's not
specific to your patch :)
Anyway, I don't know much about Vulkan so I can't judge your code, but I
think SDL should support it, as it seems to gain traction, especially on

Any suggestions for how to improve this, why libsdl won't support
vulkan, or anything I forgot to do that's necessary to commit this?
I've implemented support for Vulkan by emulating Tizen's interface.
The patches are too big to send to this mailing list, so I've
created a github gist
I've implemented the driver for X11 using both XCB and Xlib. I also
added a test for Vulkan.
