Thank you for the email. Max is part of our infra team and has
identified a possible need with our
<http://rsync.opensuse.org> infra. We would be grateful for cpanel's
support. He could email you the details of how you could help.

Hi Andrew (and everyone else)!
It's so great to hear from you, and thank you so much for reaching
out. We are honestly interested in helping get you the things that
you need that you just can't get for yourself. Funding is
definitely an option, as is hardware. We're open to helping in
whatever way we can, short of hiring people or time-space
manipulation. :D We are mostly interested in things that directly
support Open Build Service. Here are examples of ways we've
supported other projects:
* Project funding
* Equipment loans
* Logo redesign
* Foundation contributions
* Bandwidth + hardware for mirroring
What works best for you all?
