    Wasted man power

    Nouveau is basically wasted man power. They really need documentation on how Nvidia graphic cards work if they want to make something remotely usable. A graphics card is not a simple piece of hardware as we all know.

    Radeon driver is in much better shape due to the fact that is partially backed by AMD and some of its engineers.

    Of course the Nouveau team is free to do whatever they want with their time, but in the end they will realise they have wasted a precious time in their life. People who want to use Nvidia for OpenGL and/or CUDA use Nvidia's binary driver. We all would like to have open source Nvidia drivers, because they make great graphics cards, but this is not going to work.

    Nouvau is in need of more testing.
    Or maybe O.org fund can start building infra/hw/sw for automated tests accessible remotly for core mesa/kernel/x/wayland devs?
