very cool :-). I had the same thought and started talking to Andreas Beckmann 
about having some sort of glx-alternatives equivalent for the three OpenGL ES 
libraries that would need to be diverted [1].

Great. The problem here being that you actually have libegl1, libgles1,
and libgles2 to divert. But all libraries depend on each other, so I
currently have one package for them:

  Package: tegra-libraries
  Provides: libegl1-tegra, libgles1-tegra, libgles2-tegra

In the mean-time, while you're discussing, should I upload a package
that simply diverts the library (It's almost finished now)?

On a side note, I'm currently building a kernel for the AC100 based on
the 2.6.38-5 package, and standard configuration files.

The glx-alternatives package also diverts libGL and libglx and from what I 
gathered all vendor libs seem to provide libegl1, libgles1 and libgles2 
alltogether (at least for tegra, omap3 and omap4). I would guess systems only 
supporting GL ES 1are rare these days and won't get new Debian support in the 
future.

Looking at fglrx the one-package style also seems to be normal, i.e. they have 
fglrx-driver which contains the xorg-driver and fglrx-glx which provides libgl 
and libglx via the glx-alternatives mechanism.

As this was the way the fglrx and nvidia drivers handled this it until some 
weeks ago I would say - go ahead :-)

From what I gathered, the glx-alternatives mechanism is more a means to 
support switching between differend implementations without having to hard-
remove the relevant packages and let different vendor implementations play nice 
together on the same filesystem.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of tegra-linux back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting tegra-linux, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 634100 ITP: tegra-linux -- Binary X11 and EGL drivers for NVIDIA Tegra chipset
 owner 634100 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <634100@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
--
