how we can help

The conference pack would be very welcome. In terms of priorities I think 
the banner is a great idea and it would help make a stronger presence in a 
conference, event, etc. As for the rest, of course it would be nice to have, 
but you will want to make good use of your resources. The most powerful tool 
is by far the CD packs, specially in areas in which access to technology, 
net, etc is more difficult. CDs should be way less expensive than t-shirts 
and probably more useful at least to whoever is interested in using or 
trying out Ubuntu. But t-shirts might be a good thing for whoever is 
involved in advocacy, the conference organizers, the locoteams, etc, as they 
will definitely get some attention. Stickers or pamphlets would also be 
useful when the stock of CDs is limited and so people can at least have some 
information on it, where to get it online, how to get involved, etc.

Thanks for the great distro and amazing support! This is really impressive 
and unique if we compare it to what other distributions are doing.
