What're "we" called nowadays? Used to be Debian Associates.
In any case, we don't produce CDs. Perhaps we ought to check
this out with Bruce (with his CD producer hat on) or the FSF.
Requests like this will probably continue to trickle in to
debian-devel, and we really should handle them consistently.
If Bruce or the FSF is willing to provide complementary CDs to
debian contributors who want them, perhaps we can forward such
requests over there for processing.
