Specification repository (https://github.com/KhronosGroup/Vulkan-Docs)

  • registry/*.py
  • registry/spec_tools/*.py
  • registry/profiles/*.json
  • All files under include/vulkan/ which are not listed explicitly as originating from another repository.

Vulkan C++ Binding Repository (https://github.com/KhronosGroup/Vulkan-Hpp)

This scheme was adopted following the 1.1.96 Vulkan specification release.
