18 Since the community has bought into it, GLEP editor g2boojum
19 has marked it as "final".

22 =======
23
24 I borrowed this idea from a KDE developer name Scott Wheeler who runs a program
25 called adopt-a-geek [1]_.

27 Abstract
28 ========
29
30 I would like to start a program to bring together Gentoo developers who need
31 hardware, and those that have hardware to donate. This project will
32 hopefully get developers that need extra hardware in touch with
33 companies/individuals with extra hardware that they wish to donate to
34 help Gentoo.
35
36 Motivation
37 ==========
38
39 There are some developers out there that are using very slow hardware, and some
40 that have broken equipment that they could put back into use if they
41 had one more part. This program will help developers get the most out of
42 their exisiting hardware and fix any systems that may currently be broken.
43
44 Specification
45 =============
46
47 This is a pretty low risk proposal for Gentoo Linux since it only affects
48 me, and whoever else wishes to help out. This project would keep very
49 detailed records of everything that came in and out. We would actually not
50 handle any hardware. We would just facilitate connecting hardware with
51 needy developers.
52
53 Rationale
54 =========
55
56 KDE seems to have had luck with this. I think it would benefit the devs, and
57 make Gentoo better as a result. It would also boost morale by letting
58 developers know they are appreciated.
