68 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id3" name="credits">Credits</a></h1>
69 <p>I borrowed this idea from a KDE developer name Scott Wheeler who runs a program
70 called adopt-a-geek <a class="footnote-reference" href="#id2" id="id1" name="id1">[1]</a>.</p>
71 </div>
72 <div class="section" id="abstract">
73 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id4" name="abstract">Abstract</a></h1>
74 <p>I would like to start a program to bring together Gentoo developers who need
75 hardware, and those that have hardware to donate. This project will
76 hopefully get developers that need extra hardware in touch with
77 companies/individuals with extra hardware that they wish to donate to
78 help Gentoo.</p>
79 </div>
80 <div class="section" id="motivation">
81 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id5" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
82 <p>There are some developers out there that are using very slow hardware, and some
83 that have broken equipment that they could put back into use if they
84 had one more part. This program will help developers get the most out of
85 their exisiting hardware and fix any systems that may currently be broken.</p>
86 </div>
87 <div class="section" id="specification">
88 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id6" name="specification">Specification</a></h1>
89 <p>This is a pretty low risk proposal for Gentoo Linux since it only affects
90 me, and whoever else wishes to help out. This project would keep very
91 detailed records of everything that came in and out. We would actually not
92 handle any hardware. We would just facilitate connecting hardware with
93 needy developers.</p>
94 </div>
95 <div class="section" id="rationale">
96 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id7" name="rationale">Rationale</a></h1>
97 <p>KDE seems to have had luck with this. I think it would benefit the devs, and
98 make Gentoo better as a result. It would also boost morale by letting
99 developers know they are appreciated.</p>
