GnuTLS is used in the Sage maths project.


If a developer of GnuTLS needs access to SPARC hardware for testing GnuTLS, then 
that can almost certainly be arranged via the University of Washington. Sun 
donated a T5240 (16 core) to the project, which can be used for this sort of thing.

Drop me a private email, with a note saying the role you take in GnuTLS 
development, and a preferred username, and I should be able to arrange it.

FWIW, I also have access to HP-UX and AIX hardware. That is personally owned by 
me, but again others can have access. But due to the power costs, I only run the 
HP-UX and AIX systems when someone actually wants to do something, whereas the 
SPARC at the University of Washington is on 24/7.
