Hi Benny,
Thank you for the email. Max is part of our infra team and has identified a possible need with our 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?

Talk soon!

Hi Kenneth and Benny,

On behalf of the openSUSE Board and the openSUSE Community, I would
like to extend our heartfelt thanks for your kind offer of assistance
to the openSUSE Project!

If possible could you clarify how you would like to assist the
openSUSE Project, are you looking at ways of funding financially or
ways to contribute hardware or services? The openSUSE Board would like
to ensure that cPanel's contribution benefit both openSUSE and cPanel
as best as possible and that we as a community rightfully recognise
our sponsors.

From an infrastructure perspective, there are various ways to assist,
whether it's by providing a mirror service, hosted resources or by
funding hardware for in-house use. openSUSE has an annual conference
(normally in Europe) where sponsorship is always welcome, and in
addition we also have smaller events in Asia as well as participating
in events like SCALE and LFNW in the US where funding assistance is
also welcome. Another possibility is to sponsor a specific sprint on
technology that benefits both entities.

If you could assist us with better understanding where and how you
would like to sponsor that would help us in gratefully accepting your

Kind regards,
Andrew Wafaa

On behalf of the openSUSE Board
