Well, I guess I've been doing the "sending patches" thing for
different infrastructure things, but I don't know what this
apprenticeship thing is... Any info about that anywhere?
it's pointed to from our getting started doc:
openSUSE's donation program has the people usually ship the
to them to be set up by the openSUSE Heroes (their equivalent of the
Fedora admin team). Alternatively, the route CentOS goes where control
is handed over is an option, too. But I think we'd be better served by
people giving us equipment (and maybe even money) and allowing people
to work on their paid time to contribute to leveraging that infra.
I'm not sure the legal logistics of this. Is that a "donation"?
Fedora doesn't exist as a legal entity to accept it as far as I know.
Also, we have been offered donated hardware in the past, but it's
usually more trouble than it's worth. (ie, "I was about to toss this
PentiumIII box out, but I thought I would donate it to you instead").
All these are things we could work out however.
If there's not much holding it back, we should transition to it
anyway. If it improves the management experience and performance of
the Copr system, it'd be a huge boon.
I agree the hard part is hopefuly over, but there is still ongoing
support (upgrades, updates, adding new machines, etc).
