Imagination Is Still Struggling To Find Open-Source Developer(s) For Graphics

Since July we have been talking about Imagination Tech looking for an open-source developer to improve their open-source PowerVR graphics support. Even after relaying the request last month, they're still having a hard time finding qualified open-source graphics driver developers.

A Phoronix reader relayed this Reddit comment by Imagination Tech's Alex Voica, "Open source issues: I have sent your feedback to upper management. We have a position open to start working on PowerVR ASAP. I have done my best to communicate this to the developer community - we haven't had the best selection of CVs I'm afraid. Any recommendations or volunteers would be great."

That's unfortunate to hear... Imagination has been working to actively improve their open-source graphics driver support, but they continue to be bound by not finding qualified candidates. It's this position considering the Phoronix audience of having many graphics driver developer readers.
