The software code available at intel.com and intellinuxgraphics.org are
just snapshots of the various kernel and user mode (X.org, Mesa)
components you need to get up and running on Intel graphics hardware.
It's all open source--there's nothing sneaky (well, nothing released
anyway--intel_hal.so never came to much I guess) in any binaries you may
find. Intellinuxgraphics.org, for example, was useful for 965 users who
did not wish to run an -rc kernel. You could just update the components
that needed it to get working 3d. Unfortunately last time I referred
someone there I discovered the tarballs are gone. No idea why that is.

I thought that the mesa git repo was a mirror of CVS or has this changed
