What`s a Development Box?

We are currently buying some development boxes. These boxes are bought so some guys can work on them without having to look how to keep the services running why they initially bought the box. All boxes are owned by the community...this means that if georg/jonli447/linuxnotincluded think they absolutely have no time in the near future the boxes can be passed to another developer.

All this is based on confidence.

Needs for additional boxes?

  • germany - andre - HG/HS for testing the PPC kernel also on these systems
