14 =======

16 Another idea stolen from somebody else :) This time I stole the idea from
17 a KDE developer name Scott Wheeler who runs a program called
18 adopt-a-geek [1]_.

20 Abstract
21 ========
22
23 I would like to start a program to bring together Gentoo'ers who need
24 hardware, and those that have hardware to donate. This project will
25 hopefully get developers that need extra hardware in touch with
26 companies/individuals with extra hardware that they wish to donate to
27 help Gentoo.
28
29 Motivation
30 ==========
31
32 There are some developers out there that are using very slow hardware, and some
33 that have broken equipment that they could put back into use if they only
34 had one more part. This program will help developers get the most out of
35 there exisiting hardware and fix any systems that may currently be broken.
36
37 Specification
38 =============
39
40 This is a pretty low risk proposal for Gentoo Linux since it only affects
41 me, and whoever else wishes to help out. This project would keep very
42 detailed records of everything that came in and out. We would actually not
43 handle any hardware. We would just facilitate connecting hardware with
44 needy developers.
45
46 Rationale
47 =========
48
49 KDE does this [1]_, and I've sent an email to the guy who runs the project over
50 there, to see how well it has worked out for them. I think this would
51 benefit certain developers and Gentoo as a whole.
