Support
-------

Many Mesa devs hang on IRC; if you're not sure which channel is
appropriate, you should ask your question on `Freenode's #dri-devel
<irc://chat.freenode.net#dri-devel>`_, someone will redirect you if
necessary.
Remember that not everyone is in the same timezone as you, so it might
take a while before someone qualified sees your question.
