Re: debian-devel@lists.debian.org

Hi Milan, Jon,

As discussed, 'the Debian project' as such has huge difficulties accepting 
hardware donations - offers are often turned down. (tangent - in my opinion 
donations should be accepted more liberally and if the Debian 
administrators can not be bothered to administer yet another machine, I'm 
sure somebody can be found on case-by-case basis to administer these 
machines and give out accounts to developers as needed.)

For Sun machines, the best place to ask is probably the Debian sparc porters 
mailing list (debian-sparc@lists.debian.org) - if anybody is interested in 
this machine, he's bound to hang out there.  I guess you could donate the 
machine to the Debian project and have it be taken care of some individual 
developers.  Especially since you (Milan) are ready to host it, you can 
somewhat control that it's really being used for Debian work (or at least, 
you can cut access again and donate it to somebody else or whatever.)

Another possibility is local Linux user groups - especially since (I'm 
thinking of Milan) international shipping may be a major problems.

According to my calculations the problem doesn't exist.
