Move OpenGL Bindings to their own project/repo

Description

We currently have bindings to OpenGL included in the Parrot master repository. I suggest that these should be moved out into their own project. This could give these bindings more visibility, and help them to be treated like any other normal ecosystem project.

I suggested this idea yesterday at #parrotsketch and received very mild support for the idea. I'm opening this ticket as an RFC in an attempt to build more support for it. If we do decide to go this route we can change this to a deprecation and begin the process of moving the bindings out of the repo.

Would anybody like to comment on this ticket? If this is something we want to pursue, I would like to get in the deprecation notice before 3.0

  • type changed from RFC to deprecation
  • milestone 2.11 deleted

As followup, the OpenGL bindings were marked as deprecated and a notice added to yaml some time ago. This ticket will help track the status of that deprecation.
