Well, you and Stewart are maintaining the amd and nvidia graphics
drivers together. So you two have to sort it out. But I consider Stewart
the main maintainer and I just did what he told me when we discussed the 
issue on IRC.

BTW a general note: I only imported those graphics drivers to F9 and 
rawhide (and their kmods) that are known to work yet -- e.g. only the 
main nvidia package. But everything is in F8

That afaics would might delay us for weeks and confuse people. Even now 
people on IRC ask "where are the graphics drivers in RPM Fusion?"

And in general: we can realize what you are working on at any time; no 
harm is done by importing the current stuff. Or, IOW: There is no need 
that we have to do it together with the repo merger. It#s a totally 
seperate issue

And in general: At least I'd much prefer to leave everything for F8 and 
F9 as it is and do all that changes to make the drivers parallel 
installable in devel only.

I'd actually say we haven't really started the testing phase yet, as we 
didn't announce one yet ;-) But nevertheless should work towards 
bringing the repo in good shape as quickly as possible. Waiting for 
packages foo or bar will kjust dalay things more in the ned and make 
life more complicated for those that have to maintain their packages in 
boths repos.

Yes, a target date would be nice. But I fear to set one right now -- we 
haven't heard anything from thias for weeks and a lot of things are 
blocked right now due to that. That is not nice now, but it will be a 
really big problem if we have serious trouble during the start phase 
that only thias can fix...
