Sorry for the confusion. I didn't know until recently that there will be
a bunch of Ubuntu CDs at the event. I'm bothering many people within the
Swiss FLOSS community since weeks in order to produce a large quantity
of CDs after an Ubuntu release. Nobody had confirmed that there will be
CDs so I thought on doing it myself. I'm just a very big fan of Ubuntu
and would like to spread it among teachers, business people, academics
etc. and distribute it at OpenExpo, OSS an Schulen events etc. But it's
only a test run, if things go wrong I won't repeat it.

Concerning the case I don't care much what's written on its back. So if
you wish to change the text or add something such as "Swiss Ubuntu
Community: www.ubuntu.ch" or another address just let me know.

Best, Matthias
