           Summary: [TRACKER] ARB_texture_float extension support
           Product: Mesa
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW

P.S. As possible workaround, why not just to keep this into current way, i.e.
in separate branch, but into main mesa/mesa git repository, so all interested
driver-developers could participate? Until a better solution will be found (not
a quick deal, I presume), of course. This way floating support will be tested
on various hardware by those who want to try it and maintaining of this branch
will not fall on single man.
