Furthermore, if that user is serious about getting his package in, is there a way for him to get his package into official testing? I'm asking in case he comes back looking for guidance.
I apologize if I missed something, but it appears that for the last year developers haven't touched this ticket, the software, or made a statement to the effect of "we're looking at it." Then a user posts a forum link for his install package where he makes it very clear that it's a personal package and he's just looking for testers. Now you show up (a year after this ticket was made), delete the comment, and that's it? Not even a "we're looking at this" after you deleted the comment? I understand your logic in removing the comment and it makes perfect sense. I'm more at a loss as to why your only action on this year old ticket was to warn a user and delete his comment.

I can confirm the exact same issue and the logs look very similar. Steam crashes immediately after logging in. The main window never pops up. All software in the software center is up to date on the machine (using stable repos), using open source AMD drivers, and has worked perfectly before this week. We reinstalled Steam, linux-steam-integration, and reset steam configurations to no avail. Log attached:

According to this link it looks like it can be built as an external kernel module or it can built in-line with the kernel. It also looks like they are going for mainline inclusion by the end of this year if things pan out for them.
