Could we not solve the problem with a CD burner and ISOs of the source
CDs? Perhaps we could get someone to donate a few CD-R disks. Then
we give out the tons of binary CDs, and those who want source CDs can
sign up for one and pick it up at the booth later.
Another idea: a "do-it-yourself" CD burning station. If you want source,
you can stand in line for an automated process that burns the source set.
In a pinch, we could even do the same thing for binary CDs if we ran out
of donated ones.
