    No, AMD is not funding us. It's simply the fact of better enabling the Linux community. If NVIDIA wants a git repository, they can have one too!

    Ok, point taken.
    But you must understand the reason behind my question, i see far more space dedicated to AMD/ATI news or related stuff in Phoronix, it would be a shame to see an excellent and a supposed impartial site like this turn to either one of the gpu manufacturers.
    I'm sorry if i didn't express myself in a more appropriate way.

    That's simply because there is more to actively report on and that they are willing to send us new drivers early for benchmarking, etc. On the NVIDIA side, there's good and bad days whether they cooperate and let us know in advance new information, etc. I am more than willing to work with both companies and have been doing so.

    AMD pulls before each beta release and then one final time about a week before the final release.

    It's not really hard to use.

    As long as you don't modify things in your local tree, there are really only these things, that you might need:
    Code:
    git clone http://phorogit.com/repo/fglrx-packaging.git fglrx-packaging
    Clones the Phorogit tree to fglrx-packaging.

    Code:
    cd fglrx-packaging
    git pull
    Updates your local tree with the changes, that have been made in phorogit repository.
    Right after clone it should said "Already up-to-date.".
    Code:
    cd fglrx-packaging
    git log
    View the log of the changes, that have been made.

    That should be all that is needed to get started.

    Would there actually be interest for putting an ebuild
    for gentoo in that repository, too?
    Of course it would be useless, when it actually hits
    portage, but during driver release and ebuild release in
    portage it might be helpful to some people and it could
    also be a nice way to have the latest ebuild using git,
    until it's in the tree officially.
    (Normally the ebuild changes a little bit from day to day.)

    Actually I'm using git already for my local portage overlay.
