Recently, Claudio Jeker (claudio@) added his request for an iSCSI-capable SAN device to want.html. This was a fairly low profile addition to want.html, so David Gwynne (dlg@) made it more obvious with an e-mail to misc@.
Please read on for David's full mail:

Subject: iSCSI NAS/SAN for claudio@
i would encourage people to consider sending donations in for this, i think it
would be an extremely good investment. claudio already has a good start on an
implementation of an iscsi initiator, but he's at the point where he needs
real gear to work and test against. given the gear i fully expect him to be
able to make progress pretty quickly, which in turn means the rest of us can
then use it. aside from the usefulness of it, i would love to see some iscsi
code done the OpenBSD Way(tm) out in the wild too.

As David suggests, sending in donations to get Claudio a suitable device may be the fastest way to get him such a machine. But of course, if you're in a position where you could donate a complete iSCSI box, be sure to contact Claudio!
