Well, I'm not the maintener, you know ;)

I have that:

ducrot@poupon:~$ grep dri /etc/apt/sources.list 
deb http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/dri-trunk-sid/ ./
ducrot@poupon:~$ dpkg -l \*trunk\*
| Status=Not/Installed/Config-files/Unpacked/Failed-config/Half-installed
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name           Version        Description
un  drm-trunk-modu <none>         (no description available)
ii  drm-trunk-modu 2003.10.05-1   Source for the DRI CVS trunk DRM modules
ii  xlibmesa-gl1-d 2003.10.05-1   Mesa 3D graphics library [DRI trunk]
un  xlibmesa3-dri- <none>         (no description available)
ii  xserver-xfree8 2003.10.05-1   The XFree86 X server [DRI trunk]

with that, it work OK, but with a 7500 M7 LW.
