AMD hand me specs on a CD

So about 30 minutes ago AMD's Matthew Tippett and John Bridgman handed me a CD containing the initial 2D specs for M56 and rv630 without any NDA. They then gave CDs to anyone else in the room and they are now available at
http://www.x.org/docs/AMD

This is a great initial step forward in the open source graphics driver story, since AMD rang me about 3 months and asked me to help out on setting a direction for this project I've been looking forward to this day.

Novell/SuSE are working on a driver based on these docs which should be available in the next week or so.

Big thanks to AMD for reopening dealings with the open source community, and I hope to be able to bring the good news as it happens here.
