|Recently sparc instituted a Sparc AT (architecture testing) subproject to help with the general testing process associated with the normal bug fixing and package upgrade process. This subproject currently has two members and is proving to be quite successful. Consequently, we would like to expand the AT team to provide more coverage. While no specific hardware is required (other than a sparc64 system, of course), nor any specific application, we are especially interested in expanding the capability to test:
- Sound applications on sparc;
- Server applications (mail servers, name servers, apache, and so on).
The general requirements are sparc hardware, demonstration of some sparc experience, and enthusiasm. In becoming an AT, you will go through a mentoring process, and at the end will successfully complete Gentoo's ebuild quiz, which is here: http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/devrel/quiz/ebuild-quiz.txt
If you are interested, please review the sparc AT documentation here http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/base/sparc/at/ then contact either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for further information and processing. Note that if you are interested in becoming a sparc developer, the path AT --> developer is not only reasonable but also encouraged.
