dotsrc relies on sponsors donating hardware, service agreements, licences, housing and a lot more, and without our sponsors we would not be able to deliver our services to the Open Source community.
The university is one of our oldest supports. Since the beginning they have been providing us housing for the servers and backup.
This is just a short list of things the university has provided:
- A new news server
- A new mirror server
- Server rack
- Cables, converters, all kinds of small indispensable things.
- Generally being extremely nice people
