Last year Valve made all of their games free to Debian developers as a thank you since SteamOS is based on Debian. Now Valve is giving out their collection of all current and future games to open-source Mesa developers.

To Mesa developers -- those that have 25 or more Git commits over the past five years -- Valve is making their current and future games free. Mesa developers can contact Daniel Stone at Collabora who is handling the process for Valve of giving out their games to Mesa developers. Details via this mailing list post.

Hopefully this will lead Mesa developers to continue testing and optimizing the various graphics drivers for optimum performance within Valve's Steam Linux games.
