Subject: [gentoo-mips] [WANTED]: Cobalt-Mips Dev

Wanted for the Gentoo/MIPS Team:
An active person interested in assisting the Gentoo/MIPS Team in the following 
areas: cobalt-mips

Individual will be responsible for maintaining cobalt-mips support (denoted as 
a sub-project of the Gentoo/MIPS project).  Duties will include making sure 
various system packages work with the hardware (which is little endian, 
different from the big endian SGI systems), maintaining the colo bootloader 
and associated boot scripts, working with the documentation lead for 
cobalt-specific documentation, and working with the general Gentoo/MIPS Team 
on package stability and other various issues.

Individual will, at minimum, need to own and operate a Cobalt Microserver 
system, preferably a RaQ2 (any variety), or Qube2, or RaQ1.  Qube1 systems are 
not known to work very well with linux (and require special modifications to 
enable the serial port).  Ownership of SGI systems capable of running linux is 
a plus.  Individual will also need to run Gentoo on said Cobalt system(s).

All interested parties please email mips@g.o listing what Cobalt 
machine they own/operate (as well as any additional machines), a summary 
stating your skills and abilities, and how those can be applied to this area 
of the Gentoo/MIPS team.
