I haven't had much time to work on sensors stuff lately, but your
offer is interesting... not least because I recognize your company
from a couple messages to the Philly LUG and because I live relatively
close to Exton myself.

I took a quick look at the PC87372 datasheet - that combined with Jean
Delvare's recent work on similar NatSemi chips should make for a pretty
straightforward driver.

As for donations, the sensors project is not set up to accept money
right now.  Of course it is useful (but not strictly necessary) to
have a hardware sample for writing a driver.  Please contact me off-
list to make arrangements.

Thanks and regards,
