We have a "long" history of sharing space with the both Debian and
GNOME booths. If the folks at this Debian expo are also OK with it, we
can work something out. It's really up to them.

One idea that has worked in the past is selling CDs (including Ubuntu
CDs) for something nominal like £1 to keep people from walking off
with them and never using them and then donating that to the volunteer
project that spared us the booth.

Unless of course, there is a joint stand in which case it will be
*massive*. :)
