That's a interesting offer but depends really on what the company's
* If they are willing to donate hardware or resources, refer
* Bring their applications into the Fedora repository (and EPEL) if they
are open source
* Assist with testing releases, providing feedback and patches for what
they consider important at a fraction of the cost required to push
changes into a commercial product
* Porting. http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures
I would suggest asking them to talk to the Fedora Board and establish a
working relationship that is mutually favourable.
Hope that helps.
