Just to add/clarify here: 

Please don't send random stuff to us without checking first. ;) 

At a minimum: 

- There must be some tangible benefit to Fedora from the hardware. 
(no, we don't want to host your personal fileserver)

- The hardware MUST be rack mountable/enterprise quality. 

- The hardware MUST have a warentee from a major vendor with 24x7
  response time. (No joe's discount computers or 9 to 5 when we get to
  it, etc). 

Your best bet if you want to send us something is to open a
Infrastructure ticket or post to the Infrastructure list or mail
admin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and we can discuss things. 

Further note that we also accept co-location/server donations in other
sites (in particular places we don't have good coverage already). 

I'd like to also thank our existing sponsors:
