Apologies for the top post.

Is there a company/sponsor that if we sent them the money would agree
to buy SSDs for the build farm?

I can imagine $8000 in SSDs having a major impact on the build farm.
And that in turn could draw in even more obs users/contributors.



I am so impressed by this idea that I have a crazy thought.

Can we have a "Buy SSDs for OBS" fundraiser as part of the next
openSUSE conference ? I am not sure if it is a common thing to collect
money during a technical conference but I have seen such fundraisers
work magic for some of the non-profit organizations in my part of the
world.

People who attend the conference can donate whatever they can.
Assuming an attendance of about 500 people, 10 EUR from each will give
a good number. Can we have this as part of the openSUSE conference ?
