I liked the idea someone brought up before of having them in a different
repository from either of the two, but probably located at fd.o. I
think it's a good idea in part because it will help enforce the
compatibility requirements in our minds, and then we can just tell
people "Check out the DRM from CVS" rather than "check out this
subdirectory of (DRI|Mesa) CVS and use this special build command." I
don't think Mesa makes any more sense as a home than DRI, since both are
consumers (and the freedesktop.org X Server is now a consumer, too). If
folks are in favor of this, I can work on setting up the repo so that
history is preserved. Would we then leave the DRM in the DRI tree
there, or remove it and have XFree86 merge from two different trees?
Actually, I'm thinking of just moving the DRM out to a separate module
in the DRI's CVSROOT.
