Bug#218369: ITP: ati-glx -- ATI binary XFree86 4.x driver

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : ati-glx
  Version         : 3.2.8
  Upstream Author : ATI Technologies
* URL             : http://www.schneider-digital.de/html/body_download_ati.html
* License         : ATI proprietary
  Description     : ATI binary XFree86 4.x driver

I intend to package ATIs binary XFree86 drivers in a manner similar to
the nvidia-glx package (probably using it as a base) for Debian. I've
talked to ATI about this, and they seem positive -- however, the package
itself currently includes no license at all (ie. nothing that permits
redistribution), and they had to check with legal to fix that. (It will
of course have to go into non-free no matter what the license is, as the
drivers are binary-only.) So, until I get an answer from ATI, it cannot
be packaged, but I hope to get a positive reply from them.
