I need some advice as to how to proceed.

I tried today to rebuild mesa from git, and it failed because /usr/include/X11/extensions/dri2proto.h was missing.

There is no ebuild that has this file, it's a new addition in xorg.

I put together an ebuild from x.org anon git for it, it was trivial.

How best to share this with the community, though?

You may want to try the x11 overlay (layman -a x11), there are some ebuilds using git versions of packages.

If you're working on DRI2, you will need to build your X server from git as well. Trying to hack around that will only end in frustration and tears.

The x11 is built from git, using the layman x11 overlay, so I know dri2proto's not there! :-)

My guess is it should be added to the x11 overlay, but who do I contact? I can't file a bug on bugs.gentoo.org (this is unsupported, after all!)

OK, I didn't know that. I used the x11 overlay some time ago for a while to check sthg, and everything had built fine.

I think it would be best if You asked on irc, say #gentoo or #gentoo-desktop. There people will tell You, where to ask.
