first of all I am really glad that mesa gets rid of this unmaintained
It is fooling users and helps to relax maintainers.
I offered a patchset for kernel-drm and libdrm in January to remove
DRM driver-date and core-date.
Maybe, I do a take #2 after your work is accepted in mesa master GIT.
I have tested your remove-driver-date GIT branch in mesa with a
linux-next kernel (next-20110405 plus drm-fixes) on a Debian/sid i386
host with a radeon RV250 (see glxinfo output below).
Libdrm is Debian's 2.4.24 and xserver Debian's 1.10.1-RC1 from
$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.39-rc1-next20110405.3-686-small (Debian
2.6.39~rc1-3~next20110405.dileks3) (sedat.dilek at gmail.com) (gcc
version 4.6.1 20110329 (prerelease) (Debian 4.6.0-2) ) #1 SMP Tue Apr
5 10:52:55 CEST 2011
$ git log --pretty=short -1

mesa: Include GIT SHA1 in GL version string
glxinfo now says:
$ glxinfo | grep -i opengl
Mesa warning: couldn't open libtxc_dxtn.so, software DXTn
OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R200 (RV250 4C66) x86/MMX/SSE2 TCL DRI2
OpenGL version string: 1.3 Mesa 7.11-devel (00b28b1)
For the version string:
What about "git-$GITHASH" in parantheses? A sole number might say
nothing to users?
Be user-friendly as possible.
Feel free to add a:
