Should we add a column indicating llvm version as well? Also, should we put a clear marker to distinguish between stable mesa/llvm and development snapshots?

I think having an LLVM column would be useful yes, the results are getting messy otherwise with people combining details and not reading the rules --TheBoss (talk) 14:15, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Fixed games

What do you think we should do about fixed games? They will need moving to a new list, but how long do we leave them up for, until the Mesa version is released that has the fix in? --TheBoss (talk) 21:10, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

May be we can keep them for some time, and then move to a separate list? Some of them are indeed fixed, while others are WONTFIX, so it's good to have a reference of what's wrong and why it's that way. — Shmerl (talk) 21:20, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
I suggest moving them to a new list at the bottom of the page as soon as the fix is confirmed. Then they can stay a bit longer even when the specific version has been released. I would say about half a year because that's the release cycle of Ubuntu and people then should have the fix in their MESA version. The "Fixed version" column will be obsolete in the original list. Several games already have fixes so the list is getting quite messy and last time I thought about changing few things the unavailability of a fixed games list and how the initial list I thought was intended, including such list kind of, lead to incompatibilities with the changes I wanted to apply. So I decided to wait :) Oooverclocker (talk) 22:32, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
