Intel Calls For More Driver Testers

Intel's Gordon Jin has announced today that the Intel graphics driver team is looking to establish a closer relationship with the Intel X.Org community of both end-users and engineers. To do this, Intel has created a new community testing program. This Intel testing program is designed to help in the testing of platforms not officially supported by the Intel validation team and bugs that are only experienced in very specific hardware/software configurations.

This community testing program is open to anyone that is able to build the latest Intel X.Org driver from source-code and use git. Those interested should check out the Intel announcement and supply information on their hardware/software configuration.

To further interact with the open-source graphics community, an "intel-gfx" IRC channel has also been made (at FreeNode) for Intel graphics driver discussion.
