A small-scale campaign to purchase hardware for a project cut loose by Red Hat.

From the campaign, by James Cammarata, the new project lead:

Created in 2007 by Michael DeHaan, Cobbler is a Linux installation server that allows for rapid setup of network installation environments. It glues together and automates many associated Linux tasks […] Cobbler was originally a Fedora/Red Hat sponsored project, and is currently a key part of the Red Hat Satellite/Spacewalk project. Since March of 2012, the project leadership has changed and it is no longer receiving direct support from Red Hat in terms of money or development contributions.


  • Campaign: Indiegogo
  • Campaign date: 2012-12
  • Campaign status: successful
  • Campaign backers: 27
  • Campaign raised: US$5776 of 4000
  • Project type: existing
  • Project license: GPL


Seems like hardware was purchased, so this can probably be counted as a success.
