    So is the idea to create more entry-level jobs for women or compete for the few competent female lead developers out there? 5.5 kilodollars a month doesn't sound like entry-level wage

    Is it like how Fedora 20 has mesa-vdpau-drivers that you have to install for VDPAU? (I dunno whether OpenCL is also packaged separately in Fedora. If it is, it's probably mesa-libOpenCL which is not...
