68 Since the community has bought into it, GLEP editor g2boojum
69 has marked it as &quot;final&quot;.</p>

71 <div class="section">
72 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id4" id="credits" name="credits">Credits</a></h1>
73 <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>
75 </div>
76 <div class="section">
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 help Gentoo.</p>
83 </div>
84 <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 their exisiting hardware and fix any systems that may currently be broken.</p>
90 </div>
91 <div class="section">
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 needy developers.</p>
98 </div>
99 <div class="section">
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 developers know they are appreciated.</p>
