I'm not sure about the full legal ramifications of this status (hey, I'm
not even allowed to vote in this country, but sure they make me pay ;-),
but I would assume that in order for hardware donations to be
tax-deductable TNF would need to provide the donor with a receipt etc.

If anybody here is considering donations, please contact
board at netbsd.org and/or finance-exec at netbsd.org.

(Note that while hardware donations are of course appreciated if the
hardware is useful and needed that you can't just get rid of your old
junk this way.  This often leads to a feeling of the donation not being
appreciated, when that is in fact not the case:  it's a question of
logistics;  the donation needs to make sense and not end up being a
burden to the Foundation.)


Probability factor of one to one. We have normality. I repeat, we have 
normality. Anything you still can't cope with is therefore your own lookout.
