RFC: README.official (defining when people get to call CDs Official)

What do you think of this ?

Policy on when you can call a CD ``Official Debian 2.0''

You can refer to your CDs as ``Official Debian CDs'' only if they are
made using images that match those found on the cdimage master site.  You can check this by running md5sum against the images that you intend to burn:

  md5sum binary-i386.raw

and comparing the output with that found here:


The suggested phrasing to use when advertising images is as follows:

  Title:                                             Images on CDs:
  ======                                             ==============

  Official Debian 2.0 Complete 4 CD Set              binary-i386.raw

  Official Debian 2.0 i386 3 CD Set                  binary-i386.raw

  Official Debian 2.0 m68k 3 CD Set                  binary-m68k.raw

  Official Debian 2.0 i386 main binary CD            binary-i386.raw

  Official Debian 2.0 m68k main binary CD            binary-m68k.raw

  Official Debian 2.0 Contrib & Source 2 CD Set      source.raw

Please note, that if you elect to sell the ``main binary'' CDs
separately, the licences for the software contained on these CDs
obliges you to provide the source for the packages for a reasonable
fee, for up to three years after the date of purchase.

We suggest that you make sure that any advert for the ``main binary''
CDs also carries an advert for the ``Contrib & Source'' set.  Also
note that some of the source for the main packages is in fact on the
contrib CD image (the source for the x11 applications)
