BeOS & Derivatives A few months ago, a bounty for porting Gallium3D to Haiku was submitted. As the target sum of $2000 has been reached, what's needed now is a developer interested in doing the actual coding work. (Gallium3D is a cross-platform video driver API, on which an increasing number of open-source Linux drivers are based.)

Was that project so little known that others in the community aren't even aware that it was started, and significant progress was made on it already?


Having a very small subset of source code in a big repo alone is insufficient to raise awareness; this is very easy to miss.

What may help make people more aware of such initiatives is if they had a home page with some of the basic info about the project (summary, goals, contact info, repo link, how to get involved, etc.), perhaps in the form of a microsite under the Haiku website.
