Response from Gumstix (in short, request denied):

Hi Christopher

Thanks for writing. As you may imagine, Gumstix receives requests from all over the world to donate our products to robotics groups and competitive teams. We cannot possibly support them all nor judge the merits of one group over the next. Unfortunately, we will not be able to sponsor your team at this time.

I'd like to be able to provide a few robotics teams with working Gumstix COMs that we are no longer able to sell so we are considering the processes required to manage this solution within our ever-increasingly busy warehouse. :-)

We plan to review our sponsorship strategy in Q1, 2011 and will keep your request in mind.

Regards
Don Anderson
