You seem to be hostile towards the git repo for reasons that are unrelated to how well it works. It is likely to work better than svn for the majority of users, and VDPAU is one area where the git code is particularly far ahead of svn. Mentioning it as a possible remody for VDPAU problems is something you should also do if you really want to help users. I take it you'd prefer the users continue to suffer from their problems rather than hear of solutions involving the use of the git repo. (And no the git repo is currently not a remedy for finding and installing the required external headers and tools - the behavior doesn't differ much from svn in that area.) > on HP-UX 11.00 running on a B132L).

However you clearly don't understand how many potential issues there are and how much work finding out everything needed can take if you start from scratch.
