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.
