Updated and Optimized Ubuntu Free Graphics Drivers
I'd have to agree with crazycheese, don't release something if you're aware it will break things. You describe the PPA as "...updated X (2D) and mesa (3D) free graphics drivers for radeon, intel and nvidia hardware." but then state
...I prefer to ship an updated version leaving out a driver if it blocks all the build (this is my PPA, it's free, I don't have an intel card so I prefer to do this )
Would you knowingly break ATI or nVidia support? I *really* do appreciate the work you've put into creating and maintaining this PPA but I just can't use it if you're willing to disregard users this way. For a long time I viewed this as a way to stay up to date with less risks than using edgers.
