I have cc'd in the Linux/MIPS mailing list, as this is probably the
best source of "deserving bodies" who might actually be able to do
something with it.

I would further qualify things by saying that I think a free box like
this should go to someone who is both capable of doing kernel work on
it, and has some time to devote to the project.  I'd be happy if
someone on the mailing list knows someone like this who could be
brought into the project with the donation of this hardware.

The hardware is:
