I think it does make sense to have EANs for Debian, but perhaps it isn't
necessary to have an EAN for *everything* we produce.
E.g., we could have:
- An EAN for CD1, DVD1, and BD1 for every architecture,
- An EAN for the various live images
- An EAN for "the full set" of DVD and BD images
There's no need to have an EAN for, say, the armel DVD#10 or some such.
Alternatively, we could assign EANs on a by-request basis; if a media
vendor wants to sell a particular (set of) image(s) on amazon or some
other such site that doesn't have an EAN yet, provide a contact for them
to request an EAN for that set.
Could you people please use IRC like normal people?!?
