Introduction

Mesa is a big deal if you're running open source graphics drivers. It can be the difference between a smooth experience and an awful one. Mesa is under active development, and it sees constant noticeable performance improvements. That means it's really worthwhile to stay on top of the latest releases. Debian usually doesn't, though, so Debian users have to take matters into their own hands.

The NodeJS Foundation recommends a Debian repository hosted by a popular NodeJS hosting service.
