Good questions.

> What restrictions will be in place by the FSUK?
Firstly, I should point out that Manchester FS is an independent organisation.

Secondly, the FSUK doesn't really exist as an organisation (more of an
idea to be implemented), so won't be making any restrictions. Anyway,
I think the idea was for the FSUK to be a kind of umbrella under which
FS user groups could gather, so probably wouldn't ever give out any
rules (although obviously this is not up to me). I'd like it to become
something like lug.org.uk!

Hmm, difficult one ;)

Personally, I would love to give out Ubuntu CDs. Unfortunately, when I
made the suggestion on the list others weren't so keen ;) We will
definitely be giving out the openDisc and gNewSense CDs and I'm hoping
to eventually convince the others involved in organising the event
that we should give out Ubuntu CDs too.
