They could have been donated for use by Geronimo or GBuild. However,  
they can't be "owned" by Geronimo. The Geronimo project can't own  
anything... The ASF can own things, but not individual projects.

I have no problems with someone/something donating the machines to the  
ASF. However, I doubt they want them. They would become an admin  
liability for ASF Infra.
