"The more I think about it, the more I think I should think about it some more."


I have a range of machines I have full physical access to and control over. I volunteer them for any testing that needs doing for significant projects in the community.

All programs are expected to come with source, be under a sane FLOSS license, and generate their own logs/dumps to be sent back (unless the info they output is trivially small).

As a precaution they will probably be run in a sandbox of some kind, but that shouldn't affect results at all. In the case that a program clearly needs more access, compromises can be worked out.

Easily accessible information about the machines is below. More information is available on request (use my Talk page).
