Make GL games usable on arm GLES

Registered by Oliver Grawert on 2012-10-29

The Ubuntu archive is full of exciting GL games. Many of these games are likely runnning fine on arm if they are built with the right flags to enable GLES support.

We are looking for community members to assemble a list of possible candiates for this, submit package fixes and get them sponsored into the archive by an Ubuntu dev.

During the session a plan should be assembled on how to handle this task in detail (blog posts to generate interest, some kind of leadership to coordinate the effort etc)
