Hello all,

I originaly sent this email to Ralph Angenendt and he suggested posting 
it to the devel mailing list.I have had a look at the CentOS distro and 
noticed that you are looking for a maintainer for SPARC. Whilst I don't 
have access to a SPARC system as yet I do have access to an AXP (ALPHA) 
and noticed that the latest build/release you have for this platform is 
4.3 and not 4.4 or 5. If you need extra resources to help make the newer 
releases happen for the AXP platform, I am more than willing to help out 
where I can.

I work as a systems developer and have a background not only in 
development but also systems administration which includes building 
custom toolchains and embedded versions of Linux for various hardware 

Initially I can begin work on producing a AXP release with a SPARC 
release following once the hardware hits my doorstep. Let me know if you 
are interested in my offer.
