it's pointed to from our getting started doc:

I'm not sure the legal logistics of this. Is that a "donation"?
Fedora doesn't exist as a legal entity to accept it as far as I know.

Also, we have been offered donated hardware in the past, but it's
usually more trouble than it's worth. (ie, "I was about to toss this
PentiumIII box out, but I thought I would donate it to you instead").
All these are things we could work out however.

I agree the hard part is hopefuly over, but there is still ongoing
support (upgrades, updates, adding new machines, etc).
