69 <p>Another idea stolen from somebody else :) This time I stole the idea from
70 a KDE developer name Scott Wheeler who runs a program called
71 adopt-a-geek <a class="footnote-reference" href="#id3" id="id1" name="id1">[1]</a>.</p>
72 </div>
73 <div class="section" id="abstract">
74 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id5" name="abstract">Abstract</a></h1>
75 <p>I would like to start a program to bring together Gentoo'ers who need
76 hardware, and those that have hardware to donate. This project will
77 hopefully get developers that need extra hardware in touch with
78 companies/individuals with extra hardware that they wish to donate to
79 help Gentoo.</p>
80 </div>
81 <div class="section" id="motivation">
82 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id6" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
83 <p>There are some developers out there that are using very slow hardware, and some
84 that have broken equipment that they could put back into use if they only
85 had one more part. This program will help developers get the most out of
86 there exisiting hardware and fix any systems that may currently be broken.</p>
87 </div>
88 <div class="section" id="specification">
89 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id7" name="specification">Specification</a></h1>
90 <p>This is a pretty low risk proposal for Gentoo Linux since it only affects
91 me, and whoever else wishes to help out. This project would keep very
92 detailed records of everything that came in and out. We would actually not
93 handle any hardware. We would just facilitate connecting hardware with
94 needy developers.</p>
95 </div>
96 <div class="section" id="rationale">
97 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id8" name="rationale">Rationale</a></h1>
98 <p>KDE does this <a class="footnote-reference" href="#id3" id="id2" name="id2">[1]</a>, and I've sent an email to the guy who runs the project over
99 there, to see how well it has worked out for them. I think this would
100 benefit certain developers and Gentoo as a whole.</p>
