Bug#588361: RFH: fglrx-driver -- non-free AMD/ATI r6xx - r7xx display driver

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request assistance with maintaining the fglrx-driver package.

The package description is:
 Display driver for the ATI recent Radeon and FireGL graphics cards.
 This package provides 2D display drivers and hardware accelerated OpenGL
 for X.Org version 7.1. For 3D acceleration to work, you will need to
 compile the fglrx kernel module for your kernel: see the fglrx-source
 package. Note that the driver will work without the kernel module, but 3D
 acceleration will be disabled.
 The driver can work with plain mesa libGL, but some applications may require
 the proprietary libGL. This library is shipped in the fglrx-glx package.
 This driver is not free. As an alternative, you may try the newest free
 driver xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd.
 This driver will replace parts of your X11 and Mesa system.

My further TODO in the team:
- Better dkms integration
- Forwarding and solving of bugs (if possible)
- Better documentation of well known bugs and their workarounds
