Hey guys,

we've talked about the possibility of an Xfce Buildbot server for a
while now. Samuel Verstraete, a fellow Lunar Linux developer and active
person on the Xfce mailing lists and IRC channels, has offered to
donate a server for that. The University of Stockholm has kindly
accepted to house it. The main Lunar Linux/Foo Projects server is
already located there and we've made very positive experiences with
them in the past. But right now the server is still in Belgium.

Samuel has calculated that 87 EUR are needed for UPS shipment. The
server currently has 2 GB of RAM which is not much considering that
we're planning to run several virtual machines on it. So if we could
gather 40 EUR for an another 4 GB of RAM that would be great! In
addition its worth thinking about adding another CPU. The machine has
two sockets of which only one is being used right now. That would add
another 40 EUR.

So, all in all we're in need of 130-170 EUR here. This is why we'd be
very happy if you people could help us out here.

Every donator will be personally mentioned on my weblog [1] (and thus
on blog.xfce.org) and on our mailing lists. Due to the lack an official
PayPal account for Xfce, donations can be send to my account:
info at sten-net.de.

A start has already been made by two people:

    * Michael Marending (who donated to Thunar a while a go)
    * Enrico Tröger

The current status is: 35/170 EUR. 

Happy donating ;)

  - Jannis
