Hardware Donation?

FreeBSD has always been my OS of choice in general and specifically for 
my Sparc gear. Hence, why I wanted to donate my equipment to the 
project. However, I certainly have no reservations to donating the 
hardware to another *BSD project that can use the hardware. It would be 
of course secondary to the needs of the FreeBSD team. I'll give the 
FreeBSD offer a bit more time, until mid next week.

Did you have a specific *BSD project in mind for the gear? Do you 
represent any of those projects? In the event that I offer the gear to 
another BSD project, is there any knowledge of which project is in 
greater need of the hardare? NetBSD, OpenBSD, <insert others here>?
