    Default Crowd-Funding Mesa Driver Development?

    Phoronix: Crowd-Funding Mesa Driver Development?

    While Canonical right now is attempting to raise millions of dollars for their Ubuntu Edge project, on a smaller scale would crowd-funding work for development of Mesa?..

    There is ONE place where Xorg foundation (and mesa) lack cash...

    Its Khronos membership. It would have little positive effect on OpenGL implementation (since at least one Intel dev do participate in ARB).
    However Khronos membership also mean ROYALTY FREE IP license for every essential IP that do not have any alternative.

    Here is more stuff on it:

    So we crowd fund Xorg (mesa is not legal entity, right?) membership in Mesa. We crowd fund some legal expertise on what would we gain from it. And hopefully at the end of the day, we enjoy freedom to implement full OpenGL without fear of liability...

    Could be interesting if this developer had more knowledge.
    Now I feel that I personally could do the same job.

    I'm not negative to the concept, it's very good if this gets
    funded and actually gives something. The only thing I say
    is that I'm not going to help it.

    But you didn't. That's the point.

    Of course. That's why I'm not asking for help of funding it.

    Question

    I'd help do it. I've helped GIMP crowdfunding and Ubuntu Edge's.

    Any reason you don't just pick a different part to work on?

    Not exactly relevant, but I'd put $100-$200 towards work on bettering the OpenCL gallium work.
