Re: Pull off AIGLX repoistory?

I think that people interested on propietary drivers breakage should create a group to test and put the results of testings on a blog

Go ahead and announce it. From the Fedora perspective, it doesnt matter.
Users cannot expect Fedora developers to test and announce breakages on
proprietary software and if we are not going to do it consistently, we
shouldnt be do this at all.

Feel free to do so but if we are having so much volunteers around, we
could use some more testing and triaging on our test releases and
updates before we worry about third party components.
