Hi everyone,

Just a quick heads up to say I've put in this request. I'm taking care
of distribution again this time around, I'll be able to start shipping
them out once they arrive, but the release is still a week away, then
they need to be printed, shipped overseas...

If you would like some DVDs, please contact me at lyz at ubuntu.com
with your name, address and purpose for request (Need some for your
school or library? Handing out at a small event?).

If you are in the same area as someone else in the team who needs CDs
please try to request them together as I'm paying for these shipping
costs out of pocket and it's cheaper to send larger packages than
several small ones.

This is the only shipment the team gets per cycle, so please don't
waste these DVDs and request only a limited number to suit your needs!
Follow these tips to help stretch our supply:

1. At tech events, inform (maybe hand out cards with instructions?)
users that they can download and burn an ISO:

2. Burn ISOs as they wait! Bring along some blank DVDs and a system
that can burn a DVD at the event and give them a fresh copy

3. For handing out at other events, use the pressed DVDs as display
copies and use our CD sleeves for burned copies:

4. For installs and demos at events, try using a USB stick

NOTE: For larger conferences please contact me with details so we can
request an https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuAtConferences conference pack
plus DVDs AT LEAST 6 weeks prior to the event.

I will update information to the bottom of
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects/QuantalRelease once I
start shipping them so everyone will be able to keep track of the
number of DVDs still available.

Hi All,

Just a quick note that approved teams can find out how to order your
Ubuntu 12.10 DVDs at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoGettingCds. We look
forward to hearing about the wonderful work you are doing to share the
DVDs with people. Rock on. :-)
