"This is a new beast and off-limits to all but developers. This is a parallel Mesa repository for developing Nouveau Gallium3D support, i.e. what you all are eagerly waiting for: 3D acceleration. The "master" branch has long been untouched, but like in the upstream, there are the branches "gallium-0.1" and "gallium-0.2". In the upstream, i.e. the main Mesa repository, the "gallium-0.2" branch is used to prepare Gallium3D for merging it into "master" branch. Cleanups and possibly some interface changes are done there before the merge. Meanwhile, "gallium-0.1" is the branch where to develop drivers, and it is kept more stable."
