320 g2boojum 1.5 <p>I borrowed this idea from a KDE developer name Scott Wheeler who runs a program

324     <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id5" id="abstract" name="abstract">Abstract</a></h1>
325     <p>I would like to start a program to bring together Gentoo developers who need
326     hardware, and those that have hardware to donate. This project will
327     hopefully get developers that need extra hardware in touch with
328     companies/individuals with extra hardware that they wish to donate to
329 liquidx 1.1 help Gentoo.</p>

332     <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id6" id="motivation" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
333     <p>There are some developers out there that are using very slow hardware, and some
334     that have broken equipment that they could put back into use if they
335     had one more part. This program will help developers get the most out of
336 g2boojum 1.5 their exisiting hardware and fix any systems that may currently be broken.</p>

339     <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id7" id="specification" name="specification">Specification</a></h1>
340     <p>This is a pretty low risk proposal for Gentoo Linux since it only affects
341     me, and whoever else wishes to help out. This project would keep very
342     detailed records of everything that came in and out. We would actually not
343     handle any hardware. We would just facilitate connecting hardware with
344 liquidx 1.1 needy developers.</p>

348     <p>KDE seems to have had luck with this. I think it would benefit the devs, and
349     make Gentoo better as a result. It would also boost morale by letting
