22 Mike,
23 Thanks for the offer. Currently, we do have access to a system at OSL
24 for sparc development and probably do not need access to yours.
25 However, I am making sure that everyone on the sparc team sees that your
26 system is available in case any individual can use your specific
27 configuration. We ourselves really do very little kernel work and
28 probably cannot use it for that. It is possible, though, that your
29 system can be useful when we find issues which are system-specific, in
30 which case you can expect to hear from us further.
31 I do not know how you use your system or what operating system you
32 usually have running on it. If you happen to run Gentoo/linux on it and
33 wish to become involved in our sparc project, I invite you to read about
34 the Architecture Testing program at
35 and consider if
36 you are interested in that.
38 Thangs again, and
39 Regards,
40 Ferris
