Hi all,

libva is a library and tools relating to the VAAPI video playback
acceleration specification.

libva is included in all major distributions(debian/ubuntu meego
opensuse mandriva gentoo etc.) . I need it as a dependecy to package
some meego MTF packages. Howerver, the submitter(Adam Williamson)
feels that i965-va-driver plugins and many other parts of libva may
have some patent issues.  Are there any legal guys or developers who
are familiar with libva can help to clarify the patent issues in

The Review Request is here and waits for a legal review for  almost one year:

Thanks a lot!

Chen Lei
