I think it prudent that we have to keep very good records as to the persons
details that donated the hardware, Donations from Corporate sectors are not
so problomatic, but private donations may well be stolen goods, maybe a
record of the persons address phone etc confirmed by a suitable person
(Grant, Kylie ....) by viewing the donors licence or other suitable ID, this
gives us a paper chain should goods be found to be stolen
