Hi Kush,

Thanks for your message. I am CCing this to the list to answer your 

I' d also like to suggest you create a page on the Wiki with your 
contact information and link to that from the 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuInCanadianLibraries, see the example from

The Ubuntu people are preparing a single-cd including LIVE + INSTALL for 
Dapper but right now we do have to carry 2 CDs around.

Yes, based on what' s already available.

Well, if you could start by providing links to list of libraries in your 
area, and put them in the Wiki in your section, that would help a lot. 
No need to go there right now.

We want to minimize expenses and make this a sustainable effort, but at 
the same time hace direct contact with people so I don' t see us 
actually shipping the CDs but visiting and explaining why they should 
have them.
