<p style=" margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px; margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; -qt-block-indent:0; text-indent:0px; -qt-user-state:0;">Dear all,</p><p style=" margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px; margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; -qt-block-indent:0; text-indent:0px; -qt-user-state:0;">
<br></p>

<p style=" margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px; margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; -qt-block-indent:0; text-indent:0px; -qt-user-state:0;">I&#39;ve been a Gentoo user since 2003 and been programming in UNIX/C,C++ since late 80&#39;s. Currently I&#39;m teaching at a Canadian university. </p>

<p style="-qt-paragraph-type:empty; margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px; margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; -qt-block-indent:0; text-indent:0px;"></p>
<p style=" margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px; margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; -qt-block-indent:0; text-indent:0px; -qt-user-state:0;">After seeing Diego&#39;s blog post about possible ways to contribute to running tinderbox, I thought I can try to help. </p>
<p style=" margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px; margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; -qt-block-indent:0; text-indent:0px; -qt-user-state:0;"><br></p>
<p style="-qt-paragraph-type:empty; margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px; margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; -qt-block-indent:0; text-indent:0px;"></p>
<p style=" margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px; margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; -qt-block-indent:0; text-indent:0px; -qt-user-state:0;">I have access to a machine that is primarily used for teaching, but is not used too frequently. This machine has four quad core xeon processors, 48G memory, a 80G SSD and 2Tb disk space. It currently runs Gentoo and is maintained by me. So, this can be used to run an instance of tinderbox.</p>
<p style=" margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px; margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; -qt-block-indent:0; text-indent:0px; -qt-user-state:0;"><br></p>
<p style="-qt-paragraph-type:empty; margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px; margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; -qt-block-indent:0; text-indent:0px;"></p>
<p style=" margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px; margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; -qt-block-indent:0; text-indent:0px; -qt-user-state:0;">Since this is on our university network, it is not possible to let someone else access it. So, I will have to do all the work in setting up and running it (and I&#39;m willing). To minimize disruptions to the current setup, I&#39;d like to run it in a separate virtual machine/chroot whatever. </p>

<p style=" margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px; margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; -qt-block-indent:0; text-indent:0px; -qt-user-state:0;"><br></p><p style=" margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px; margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; -qt-block-indent:0; text-indent:0px; -qt-user-state:0;">
So, if this is useful and if someone is willing to spend a bit of time helping me get started, I&#39;ll be very happy to get involved and contributing something back to Gentoo community.</p>-- <br>Sam<br>
<div>PS: I&#39;m currently administering about 6 Gentoo servers, have sent a handful of bug reports and have written an ebuild or two. This may help gauge how much hand-holding I may need.</div>
