OpenGLES2 Task

This task is to take the existing code stubs in librender and implement the code necessary for OpenGLES2. This includes identifying the Shaders required for the best performance. This renderer will work on both a standard desktop using the Mesa OpenGL libraries, as well as with a standard framebuffer.

Sub Tasks

Some of these tasks will be done in parallel, for example test cases written or improved while working on the code they test. To do all of these tasks, we also have to figure out the additional details required for some of these tasks. So by analysing our existing renderers and flash graphics in general, we can come up with the list of shaders required to implement an OpenGLES2 renderer.
