13 Credits
14 =======
15
16 I borrowed this idea from a KDE developer name Scott Wheeler who runs a program
17 called adopt-a-geek [1]_.
18
19 Abstract
20 ========
21
22 I would like to start a program to bring together Gentoo developers who need
23 hardware, and those that have hardware to donate. This project will
24 hopefully get developers that need extra hardware in touch with
25 companies/individuals with extra hardware that they wish to donate to
26 help Gentoo.
27
28 Motivation
29 ==========
30
31 There are some developers out there that are using very slow hardware, and some
32 that have broken equipment that they could put back into use if they
33 had one more part. This program will help developers get the most out of
34 their exisiting hardware and fix any systems that may currently be broken.
35
36 Specification
37 =============
38
39 This is a pretty low risk proposal for Gentoo Linux since it only affects
40 me, and whoever else wishes to help out. This project would keep very
41 detailed records of everything that came in and out. We would actually not
42 handle any hardware. We would just facilitate connecting hardware with
43 needy developers.
44
45 Rationale
46 =========
47
48 KDE seems to have had luck with this. I think it would benefit the devs, and
49 make Gentoo better as a result. It would also boost morale by letting
50 developers know they are appreciated.
