      Its Khronos membership. It would have little positive effect on OpenGL implementation (since at least one Intel dev do participate in ARB).

        Also, I thought AMD, Nvidia, and Intel had paid employees working on Mesa?
        You would be supporting an independent developer work full time on furthering Mesa, more specifically implementing the GL_KHR_debug extension that helps game developers debug and improve there games comparability and performance.

        AMD and Intel have paid developers working on Mesa (Nvidia does not), but independent developers help Mesa progress faster and in areas that the AMD/Intel developers aren't focusing. Manny of the the performance improvement on the Radeon driver comes from independent developers.
        In addition to what AJenbo already mentioned the best way to find out what funding is going towards is by looking at my campaign page: http://igg.me/p/475220/x/2053460
        On that page I have tried to answer all the question people have had about the campaign so far.

                  http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/he...460?c=activity

                  Basically what I intend to do sometime over the next week is to release some basic code that I will be fleashed out if funding is successful. The idea behind doing this is that I have been getting alot of feedback from potential contributors who are worried that I wont be able to deliver on what I'm promising. I'm hoping that by releasing this unfinished code it will show that I indeed have the skills to be able to implement this extension.
                  $25 sent to your cause mate!
