<b>Driver patching and testing.</b>
27
Patches are often posted to the <a href="https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/mesa-dev">mesa-dev mailing list</a>, but aren't
28 29 30 31
immediately checked into git because not enough people are testing them.
Just applying patches, testing and reporting back is helpful.
<li>
<b>Driver debugging.</b>
32
There are plenty of open bugs in the <a href="https://bugs.freedesktop.org/describecomponents.cgi?product=Mesa">bug database</a>.
33 34
<li>
<b>Remove aliasing warnings.</b>
35 36
Enable gcc's <code>-Wstrict-aliasing=2 -fstrict-aliasing</code> arguments, and
track down aliasing issues in the code.

mailing list.
Then post a message to propose what you want to do, just to make sure
there's no issues.
