The project is in dire need of upgrades to the aging infrastructure. Due to changes in the network architecture we need two new servers to act as BGP routers (one as a hot standby). The necessary systems have been priced out at USD $1000 each. These are low-end Dell R200 servers but ideal for the task at hand.
Only slightly less urgent is a replacement CVS server. It has served the project well but it needs to be replaced. This is a very demanding task and as such, requires a much more powerful system with a better disk I/O subsystem. We are looking at a Dell PowerEdge 2950 III estimated at USD $7000.
Users and corporations that benefit from OpenBSD development (and related projects such as OpenSSH and OpenBGPD) are needed to step forward and show their financial support. Without these upgrades the project is subject to system failures (and possibly worse). Donations can be made via PayPal. Corporations can submit their donations through the OpenBSD Foundation. Questions can be directed to Marco Peereboom (marco@).
