In a scenario that may possibly bridge the gap between Crisis Driven Free Geek and Maximum Free Geek, we have been approached by Providence NW to take care of their constant stream of cast-off computers. This would be a huge increase in the amount of material coming in, and would require some (major, systemic) changes of us.


This has been discussed in the Council; the various Staff Standing Committees, especially Reuse, have been discussing the potential impact of such a commitment. Council formed a group to talk about the requirements of the project and what we would need to do to be capable of adapting to the change.
