I am asking about freedesktop bug #71759.

The bug has been open since 2013, but the problems are beginning to  
surface now: on Fedora+[RPMFusion|UnitedRPMs], it breaks h.264  
playback on Totem with default settings (1). Fabrice Bellet has done  
some debugging on the problem and even submitted a patch, that however  
is not working as of now (2).

2) https://github.com/UnitedRPMs/libva-intel-driver/issues/1

Is there any progress on the issue? Is there anything a non-programmer  
would be able to do to help?

Have I understood right that these drivers are mainly developed by  
Intel employees on work time? If so, there certainly should be enough  
resources to fix it.

The bug is currently assigned to Ian Romanick, who seems to be a some  
kind of default assignee of these bugs.
