As soon as the Fedora 12 Alpha is released we could start another test
day for radeon cards. We could contact the original initiators and ask
them if they'd like to join us. The most important thing is that we will
need at least one person experienced with radeon driver hacking, do you
know one? When the Alpha is released one of us should contact Dave
Airlie and ask him whether he has the time to do the dirty work.
I didn't know the radeon situation is that bad, I guess I'm just lucky
having the right card (Radeon HD 2600).
