If you're in a position to burn any other architectures, then it would be nice 
to have as many as possible represented, just to emphasise the fact that we 
support so many.  I don't suppose there will be a lot of demand, but a couple 
of copies of each might be nice (there are going to be about 100 people 
attending apparently, so feel free to guess how many of them are likely to 
want this stuff)

I think we (Steve & I) should have the i386/source side covered, since he's 
managed to borrow a CD jukebox.  Hopefully we should end up with 50 or so 4 CD 
i386/source sets.

See you there :-)
