Cool. Since I'm planning on leaving the mini version for the community
to update it after the release, I'll write some guidelines, snippets and
package templates. Maybe you can use them, or I use yours.

Well, the fact is, that driver isn't truly free. It contains a binary
only firmware blob that is required for 2D and 3D acceleration in almost
all cards. Since until very recently it was hard to clean properly, we
stopped shipping the radeon kernel module completely. It will be
included in Trisquel's kernel from 4.0 onwards, but without the blob,
so I don't know how it will behave.

Fine for me :)
