Continuing work on open source

Since pointer lock is now in review, I’m sure there’ll be stuff to fix when review on the patches and tests are done, I went looking for a couple of bugs to do. The first bug relates to an updated macro. I don’t think it’ll take too long, it’s not a simple find and replace procedure as noted on the bug report. I’ve started by using mxr  to find out how many files are affected and how many instances. It shouldn’t be too much work, and I’m with a bit of discussion with Jeff Walden, I’m sure I can have it done by Thursday. (There are 214 instances in 78 files)

My second bug is something a bit more abstract. I’m thinking this bug might take more than a few weeks to complete, but I’m sure I’ll be able to get it done by reading week (crosses fingers). The biggest obstacle for me is that I don’t really have any idea where I should begin (aside from looking at the old patch shown in bug 595451). I’ve emailed Mounir Lamouri to see where I should begin, this should be an interesting adventure. =)
