It is wrong, of course...

The best would be to talk to the alpha porting team
(firstname.lastname@example.org) and discuss how the machine could be
used. It could always hooked to the net and just stay there to give
random developers access to another alpha machine. I, however,
believe that it would be more helpful if your friend has certain
knowledge about the architecture and development and can develop
software for the alpha port or fix problems, specific to the alpha
port, or read buildd logfiles and interpret failed builds.
