    Could you please describe the CTS process?
    There is a document for that:

      Note though that lacking certification, the driver may still advertise OpenGL 4.4 or even 4.3 in mesa 13.0
      easy to fix by adding one environment variable to profile

        there is no problem with membership. redhat has access to cts and has nouveau developers. the only problem is with manpower - someone has to fix all cts failures

          Is it possible for Mesa to be a non-conformant OpenGL 4.4 implementation? In other words, are non-conformant OpenGL 4.4 implementations illegal? agd5f airlied

              Thing is and point of this is - there is no unconformant OpenGL 4.4, when someone officialy wanna say i have OpenGL 4.4 that automatically also means it is conformant.

              Unofficialy you can do whatever you want as always, to the point of even inventing your own graphic API and of course name it as you wish.

                I just want to know whether we can expect Mesa to report 4.4 to OpenGL applications without Mesa paying $25000 or $30000 to khronos.

                From the PDF documents mentioned in this discussion it seems that Mesa will need to pay the fee if it wants glxinfo to output "OpenGL core profile version string: 4.4 (Core Profile) Mesa ...".

                  Maybe we can ask Khronos "could only we apply to pass CTS without paying?"

                  Whatever, user alone can just override it if he wants, in similar way as building mesa with texture-float or using s3tc lib...

                    I emailed the Khronos President who I communicate with regularly to try to get some clarification and if the open-source implementations would have any exemption... Did it this morning, waiting to hear back.

                      What about a indiegogo found raising?
