The FOSDEM organizers have captured more than 16h of video for 22 DevRooms and they are still working hard on getting all of these videos cut and transcoded and put on their site. This is a mammoth task, and some talks in the graphics devroom are still up in the air because of this.

Luckily, some people from the sunxi community took the livestream of sunxi related talks, and produced some quick dumps of it. I have now copied the Mali driver talk over to my fd.o account so that the sunxi server doesn't become too overloaded. Slides are also available.

This talk mentions where i am at with my mesa driver, why i am taking the route i am taking, the importance of SoC communities, and how the lack thereof hampers driver development, and also talks about the company ARM and their stance towards the open driver.

Very cool, I've been checking the Fosdem site constantly to see this recording.
One thing that's really odd though is that you're doing open source work a bit under closed doors so to speak. On the other hand I do understand your reasoning for this and as much as I wanted I couldn't help you with the code anyway, even if it were in the open. I suppose there are not that many people with the skills to contribute to Lima.
By the way, there's some new Amlogic SOCs that seems to have the most powerful Mali 450 to date.
