    For those interested I've been brain storming and have come up with a couple of alternative ways to help support my independent Mesa/piglit work without requiring you to spend any extra money. See my blog post for more information if you are interested: http://www.itsqueeze.com/2013/12/ind...funding-model/

    Please excuse my double post but there are multiple threads on this topic scattered throughout Phoronix so I thought I'd at least post in the main two.

    Is great to see my campaign has encouraged other FOSS devs to give it a try: http://girinstud.io/news/2013/09/cro...nting-in-gimp/

    Well there is just enabling the ES extension which is just a small update I would think. I just havent had time to look at how to do it yet. And the documentation is going to be a bit of an ongoing thing I guess. I would really like to get feedback on whether what I have done so far is at all useful or understandable but so far no one has made any comments on it. See this mailing list archive for the latest document: http://lists.itsqueeze.com/listinfo....-itsqueeze.com

    I have written a blog post on my website about the outcomes of the campaign and the outcomes of the survey I ran polling interest in further campaigns you might like to point to that: http://www.itsqueeze.com/2013/09/fun...crowd-funding/

    Thanx for that. I didn't look at the git log but was looking around in github to see if Mesa had issued a pull request there or something.
    Note that mesa isn't hosted at github, but freedesktop.org (so what you saw was most likely a mirror).

    I did see after I posted Brian Paul's offer to commit after Timothy did the changes. See :-

    http://lists.freedesktop.org/archive...st/044015.html

    so did realize it was considered for committing to mesa. Your reply just confirmed it. So good all around .

    Now the only thing what people would be waiting for perhaps is his documentation about how he went about doing what he did. I'm sure quite a few people may have chipped so the documentation can help newbie devs. who want to get their feet wet.

    just a bit curious to know, was your work merged in mesa ? I did see you were able to get the required money http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/he...aphics-drivers and you also did the work that you said you would https://github.com/tarceri/mesa-debug but what is unknown (to me) was that work merged in mesa ?

    I did look at the mesa mailing list and saw all your patches but it isn't clear either from the git repo. or from the mesa mailing list http://lists.freedesktop.org/archive...st/thread.html if those patches were accepted or not.

    Would be nice to know. I'm sure phoronix shed light on it one way or the other but unfortunately dunno the right keyword to see what happened. The last story I could find on this is http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTQzMjU , maybe another news item/story came out after it ?

    Update: Just saw this :-

    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTQ0NTg and saw the forum activity. Also saw the wiki page which was last updated 6 days ago. https://github.com/tarceri/mesa-debu...aphics-Library . Seems you're still pursuing a bit of the TODO which is left.

    I donated a bit to your cause. I really think a video is unnecessary for the amount of money you're expecting. I wouldn't bother with it. It's just more work for you.
    Yeah I came to the conclusion that the time in creating a video would be better spent elsewhere. If it gets closer to the target date and things have stalled I may reconsider.

    Nope I'm in Australia.

    I will be working for two weeks for the $2500 target. Yes this is indeed a paycut from my normal job but I consider that my donation to this campaign, I thought about adding that fact to my campaign page but thought it might sound a bit condersending.

    I donated a bit to your cause. I really think a video is unnecessary for the amount of money you're expecting. I wouldn't bother with it. It's just more work for you.
