This page lists various developer hardware needs. If you are interested in supporting the FreeBSD Project, you might consider donating some piece of hardware on this list to the Project.
We provide the FreeBSD username of the developer who needs a resource, the country they are in (for shipping purposes), the equipment they desire, and the use to which that equipment will be put.
For information on tax deductions and process, please see the information on the main FreeBSD Donation Liaison office page.
If you would like to donate something on this list, please contact donations@FreeBSD.org.
On a general note, we need a variety of Sparc64 machines for testing and improving our Sparc port. Even small, old (or new!) Sparc64 machines are perfectly usable. No matter which country you're in, we almost certainly have someone local who could use it. We could specifically use 1U rack-mounted Sparcs (such as E220R, E420R, Fire V100, Fire V120, or Netra T1 AC200) for our development and package-building clusters in the USA.
