The page is surprisingly effective; since I have joined DSA there were
two offers of ARM hardware, the first was an undefined number of RPis
(I redirected to debian-arm) and the second was enquiring what
hardware is needed (mentioned DSA want rackable arm64 hardware and
directed to debian-arm for other hardware).

That said, we should probably move the page to the wiki so that a
larger group of people can update it. I wanted to ask about ARM
hardware before doing that though.
