Please read on for the full message.
Editors note - one thing that will most certainly pay off for Joe user is submitting laptops to the acpi developers since fixes are made daily however the diversity of the laptops (and hence ACPI implementations) out there still is far greater than any number of laptops available to the ACPI developers.List: openbsd-tech Subject: Wanted From: Theo de Raadt
Date: 2009-06-11 17:18:58 There are a few developers who could use some more hardware. These items have been added recently to http://www.openbsd.org/want.html - thib@ in Iceland would like a smallish NetApp (like a FAS250 or such) so that he can improve our NFS codebase more - damien@ would like a huge pile of Atheros cards in France - miod@ would like some of the SGI Fuel, Origin, Onyx, or Tezro machines in France - miod@ needs a >=24port 100mbit switch since his died. - and finally, we would like a wide variety of ACPI-based laptops to pass around to our ACPI developers who are currently working on getting ACPI suspend fully working. If you have any further questions, go and and mail me. Thanks.
