as making CDs is very expensive and usually we've thrown away most of
them as they were not uptodate anymore before they were give out - I
don't think that we should provide CDs on the project's expenses. People
can download the images and burn them cheaply - or just come to a Debian
booth with an USB stick and we'll dump an installer onto it.

If magazines or companies would like to burn CDs for the project we
should be happy and take them, probably even including the magazine as
an advertisement.
