    Default Crowd sourcing Mesa development experiment

    Hi All,

    In an effort to better understand if crowd sourcing Mesa development would work I have setup a small project on Indiegogo with the Goal of implementing the GL_KHR_debug extension (OpenGL 4.3). As a stretch goal I aiming to create a bit of a guide to get started with the basics of Mesa development based on my experience. Please feel free to ask me any questions, comment on my idea or in good old Phoronix fashion flame me for whatever your reasons my be.

    To view my campaign just go to indiegogo and search for Mesa.

    Who likes to search for something they just read about? Nobody, that's who:

    Quite some money for a single extension. But whatever, if it makes debugging easier and everything, why not. Here's $25. Only 99 people left to give the same?

    Yeah sorry about that the forums wouldn't let me add a link to my post because I was a new member. Thanks for adding the link.

    First off thanks for your contribution its greatly appreciated. Second I have tried to make the price as reasonable as possible without over promising on what I can deliver given the timeframe.

    I am somehow interested on your project.

    I made a thread here

    http://steamcommunity.com/app/221410...4467479509994/

    I would be interesting to support mesa and wine, but I would like to know what the developers are doing.

    Thanks for spreading the word but I'm not sure I understand your question.

    here are a few tips:

    Some short Video and video updates will help a lot too with the credibility too specially with those more skeptic and laggard donators, just be yourself and show what you want to accomplish.

    Maybe you might even surpass your initial goal, Wish you luck !!
    Thanks for the tips. I'm not marketing wiz but I'm happy to answer any questions people have. I will consider a video however I'm unsure what else I can say that I havent already. I guess I could better explain what Mesa is and what it is that I aim to accomplish.

    Well maybe you could start your own campaign with your idea for this or preferably another extension thats the beauty of Crowd-Funding. I'm asking for funding to take time off work to implement this extension and my wife would not be to impressed if it was all for nothing. In other words I would not be interested in competing in such a competition, but you may have more luck aiming at Uni students.
