Well, a lot of us have one collecting dust in the closet (or acting as
a stand for a Power Mac...) but I don't know that RH itself has any
Alphas.
And Red Hat shouldn't be the de-facto provider of your secondary hardware. Part of the point here is that if we're going ot have these arches, there is going to need to be a community keeping them going. The work and burden shouldn't always fall back on Red Hat as it has in the past. We don't want to be like the other distros that are pooping out arch support just so that they can list something else on their webpage. If we're going to have an arch, it needs to be a viable and active community who will be self sufficient. We're providing the tools and software infrastructure to make their arch happen, but they need to bring people and machines.

Oh... Jesse, you didn't get me correct. I don't want RH to actually DO
the hosting/housing/whatever for us. I was just wondering if there are
any Alphas around, that could be (re-)used. And yes, I was also asking,
if RH want's to house/host/buy some Alphas, if they want to do so fine,
if not, that's also OK.

maddog doesn't live too far from here, and I seem to recall him telling me he had quite a few alpha boxen collecting dust in his house...
