68     Since the community has bought into it, GLEP editor g2boojum

72     <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id4" id="credits" name="credits">Credits</a></h1>
73 g2boojum 1.5 <p>I borrowed this idea from a KDE developer name Scott Wheeler who runs a program
74     called adopt-a-geek <a class="footnote-reference" href="#id2" id="id1" name="id1">[1]</a>.</p>

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

84 g2boojum 1.6 <div class="section">
85     <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id6" id="motivation" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
86     <p>There are some developers out there that are using very slow hardware, and some
87     that have broken equipment that they could put back into use if they
88     had one more part. This program will help developers get the most out of
89 g2boojum 1.5 their exisiting hardware and fix any systems that may currently be broken.</p>

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

100     <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id8" id="rationale" name="rationale">Rationale</a></h1>
101     <p>KDE seems to have had luck with this. I think it would benefit the devs, and
102     make Gentoo better as a result. It would also boost morale by letting
103 g2boojum 1.5 developers know they are appreciated.</p>
