NOUVEAU --
Red Hat is letting another one of their developers focus on improvements to Nouveau, the open-source NVIDIA Linux graphics driver.

Red Hat already has Ben Skeggs, the Nouveau DRM driver maintainer, and David Airlie, the overall DRM subsystem maintainer and contributor to Nouveau and Radeon among other Linux graphics drivers, as some of their contributors to the Linux open-source graphics ecosystem. The latest developer to now be tasked with Nouveau work is Hans de Goede.

Hans de Goede in the past has mostly been known for his Linux USB contributions while one year ago he joined the Red Hat Graphics Team where he worked on the various X.Org/Wayland things and then for a while was one of the Red Hat developers working on libinput.

With the libinput work settling down, his next course of action is going to be working on Nouveau. Right now it's not known specifically what he'll be focusing on as he's still learning more about GPU driver programming, but it's great to see Red Hat providing additional resources for Nouveau. Hans shared his new Nouveau focus at Red Hat via this mailing list post introducing himself to the Nouveau community.
