In the meeting right after the F33 release, we talked about identifying a
handful of key devices and making sure anyone with a serious interest in
testing or enablement work has what they need. I've talked with Marie, and
while we're not overflowing with cash, Fedora does have unspent budget which
would normally have gone to travel sponsorships and this seems to be a
reasonable thing to use some of it on. IoT is a Fedora Edition, after all,
and worth investing in.
At that meeting, we talked about y'all coming up with a list of specific
hardware we can order for people. Because reimbursements are a mess right
now for unrelated reasons, it's easiest when it's something Marie can
actually go to a web store, click some buttons, and have shipped direct. Can
y'all (IoT WG and ARM SIG) come up with a formal list with prices and URLs?
(Also, if other things like microsd cards need to be included?)
Of course, once we have a list of hardware, I'd also like to send it to
people. I know there's some worry about people volunteering, getting stuff,
and not actually doing anything. We want to make sure the devices are going
to people who will actually be able to make use of them. But I also don't
want that to be a blocker, so, if you're new but serious I am willing to
consider including you too. (Perhaps with the promise that if your best
intentions don't work out, you find someone else to pass the hardware on
Rather than people emailing me at random, which is easy for me to drop, can
the WG and/or SIG come up with a list of people? I'm thinking something like
a dozen people and 1-3 devices each depending on commitment level.

Can you please give me some advice about some starting point and some 'good
first issue' I could start working on?
