> Dear Wikimedians,
> The Wikimedia Foundation is pleased to announce a small new program
> called the Hardware Donation Program. In a word, it is a program
> to donate depreciated (but fully working)
hardware from the WMF office
> community members who would put it to good
> The program, including instructions on how to apply, is described on
> Meta, here:
> Please read the information carefully. I especially encourage you to pay
> attention to the program's design considerations, which determine most
> the decisions we'll be making.
> We currently have approximately 20 laptops ready to be donated.
> Applications are welcome.
> The upcoming Wikimedia Conference in Berlin (in about two weeks) would
> an excellent opportunity to deliver some of
those laptops in person to
> approved applications, so if you think you might be interested, I'd
> encourage you to apply as soon as possible.
> Please also help spread the word about this program, by forwarding this
> e-mail to other Wikimedia lists you're on, and posting the link to the
> program page on village pumps and *community* (not public) social media
> channels or other communication forms you use.
> Special thanks to User:Anntinomy from Wikimedia Ukraine, who had the
> of asking about possible donation of older
machines from WMF, and
> this program.
> Q: Why are you doing this?
> A: WMF's Office IT determines a lifetime for work machines, and
> replaces older machines. This creates a
stock of older, working
> that are available for donation. We can
donate them locally to San
> Francisco charities, but figure that if we can find low-cost ways to
> deliver them to our own community members, that's so much better.
> Q: Am I eligible?
> A: Read the fine program documentation.
> Q: If I'm eligible, am I guaranteed a donated laptop?
> A: no.
> Q: Once these 20 laptops are donated, will there be others?
> A: yes, eventually.
> Q: How can you ensure people would use the machines for Wikimedia
> A: We can't. We'll be making a good-effort assessment of the likelihood
> of Wikimedia use, and make a decision to donate (or not) the equipment.
> Once donated, the equipment no longer belongs to WMF. We encourage, but
> can't enforce, reporting on impact achieved using the equipment.
> Q: I need a few laptops for my event in two weeks! Can I get them
A: No. Read the fine program documentation.
Q: I'm really happy about this!
A: So are we! :)
Q: I'm really angry about this!
A: So it goes.
Q: I have more questions!
A: Hit 'Reply'. :)
