We in the FreeBSD x11 team are planing on making a switch to use
FreeGLUT instead of libGLUT as the default GLUT implementation. This is
in line with what most Linux distributions has done, and it also makes
sense from a license point of view. The original lisence of libGLUT
prohibiths changes, and as such new features and bug fixes are
impossible to incorporate in libGLUT.
When doing this switch, it would be best if the x11 team could take over
maintainership over freeglut, to be able to coordinate updates better,
together with updates for the other openGL parts and the xorg packages.
I therefore ask you if you are willing to pass maintainership to us.
You are also of course welcome to join us in the x11 team and continue
your maintainership through us.
Niclas Zeising on behalf of the FreeBSD x11 team.
