I am really glad the adopt a dev thing got brought up. If we can't get
people to contribute, donate, or sponsor hardware like an ethernet card
or other minor things on that list. I fail to see how we are going to
get sponsors to pony up large sums of money. Like monthly for infra
services.

Perfect example of reality != ideals

Reallying 100% on sponsors is ideal. But in reality, we will always fall
short. We will always have less than we need, much less what we want.

Most the stuff on the list above is minor. Off hand I bet the foundation
could kill that list with $10k a most. So where are all these readily
available and easy to find sponsors? Why is that list not empty, and how
long have the items on there been there?
