Hi everyone. The OpenBSD project uses a lot of electricity for running the development and build machines. A number of logistical reasons prevents us from moving the machines to another location which might offer space/power for free, so let's not allow the conversation to go that way.
We are looking for a Canadian company who will take on our electrical expenses -- on their books, rather than on our books. We would be happiest to find someone who will do this on an annual recurring basis. That way the various OpenBSD efforts can be supported, yet written off as an off-site operations cost by such a company. If we reduce this cost, it will leave more money for other parts of the project. We think that a Canadian company is the best choice for accounting reasons. If a company in some other jurisdiction feels they can also do this successfully, we'd be very happy to hear from them as well. I am not going to disclose the actual numbers here. Please contact me for details if serious. Thanks.
