    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.
    Thanks for that. Interested in knowing the reply.

      That leaves the community drivers.
      Reading your quoted passage, especially
      enable an Adopter to submit an unlimited number of products for that API (and any earlier versions as indicated in the table below).
      I don't see why there would be the need to pay the fee for the Intel and the r600/radeonsi driver.
      AMD and Intel already payed those fees (for their hardware and for their windows drivers, AMD also for their amdgpu-pro driver).
      Since they both work actively on the project, they can advertise it towards Kronos as one of their products and submit it for confirmation.

      It's a bit different for Nouveau, since (to my knowledge), Nvidia doesn't take part here, at least not actively.

        Right, hence the "already do".
