No, we don’t get any support from NVidia, no specs, docs, nor sources. We started our code from the [[nv Xorg driver|http://xorg.freedesktop.org/wiki/nv]]. That driver used to be maintained by NVidia and supports all cards up to NVC0, but only for 2-D and nv’s 2D acceleration is very slow compared to nouveau’s. See “[[How did you find out how NVidia cards work, then?|FAQ]]”. We didn’t get any support from NVidia for a long time.

However since September 2013, NVidia started releasing a few docs - unfortunately for parts we mostly already knew about - and answering some of our questions. Beside that they started adding support in Nouveau for the GK20A chipset.
