I don't think Summer of Code allows people to work together on the
same project. Then again, I don't know that anyone has heard from
Fabian (Cc'd) since he sent some piglit tests at the end of March. His
github activity seems to have stopped around the same time. Since the
coding start date was May 19th, I'm a bit concerned.

GSoC's midterm date is June 27th, less than three weeks away. It's an
awkward situation in which we want to let Fabian do the project he was
accepted for, but if we can't get in contact with him we don't want to
prevent others from making progress. Let's see if we hear something
from him soon.

Presumably you want to implement tessellation for Radeon hardware?
There's a lot of common infrastructure needed first (the GLSL compiler
lives in src/glsl).

If you want to become involved with Mesa development, you should join
the #dri-devel IRC channel on Freenode (and #nouveau, #radeon,
#intel-gfx, depending on your hardware).
