RE: Access to Ubuntu media


I'd be happy to take this as an action item and try to figure out where we
can purchase Ubuntu CD's whole sale in effort to support the ShipIt team.  I
know I found a WIKI page at one point that covered this topic but I'll start
asking around.

Another way we could go about this is to look in to paying for the CD's
images to be burnt and the Sleeves and labels printed.  The Do It Yourself
Marketing page (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DIYMarketing) has the sleeves,
labels, and ISO's for the CD's.

I'll follow up on this Next week (the next two weekends I plan on acting
like a lush at the Portland Beer Festivals).
