"Last week, Broadcom released the full source of the OpenGL ES 1.1 and 2.0 driver stack for the Broadcom VideoCore IV 3D graphics core, which they provide under a 3-clause BSD license. The VideoCore IV core is used in many of Broadcom's processors, including the BCM2835 chip, which is used in the Raspberry Pi.

But because the release targets the BCM21553 3G cellphone chip, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced a bounty of $10,000 to the first person to port it to the BCM2835 chip and successfully run Quake III 'at a resolution of 1920-1080 and a minimum of 20fps, without making use of the capabilities of the blob'. The port, it says, 'should be reasonably straightforward' to accomplish."
