Meme is now released as open source. I've known the upstream author for a
number of years, and want to help him get over some of the hurdles to making
his stuff play well with Linux. A side-effect of that is that we'll end up

perhaps doing the packaging work myself for a while. If this all works out,
my goal would be to get Marc registered as a developer so he can do this

universe on the net that everyone can inhabit.
Marc is actively soliciting project participants to join the SourceForge
project. What he could really use right now in the Linux context is for
someone who is really up on MESA or other equivalent rendering technology
for Linux systems to jump in and help him understand some performance issues.
I'm not sure what section this belongs in, we'll figure that out before upload.
