Hi everybody

The CDs are in the post. I sent them off early last week. If you want
to track your individual parcel, please contact me off list and I will
send a tracking number. Also will everybody please put their contact
info on http://ubuntu-za.org/get-ubuntu. I have a list of everyone's
details but I don't want to make this list public. I'd rather
everybody put their details on the web page themselves.

Just to explain. Getting CDs to everybody depends on some factors. The
CDs usually get sent by canonical pretty quickly. Then they have to
get through customs. Even though we get them for free, the parcel
always seems to get stopped. I think you can't send a parcel of 9 kgs
without an invoice and what seems to be a negligible amount by
european standards is enough to get taxed here. So once the customs
etc get sorted out the CDs get to me. I have to collect all the
volunteer names, divide up and pack them in 14 padded envelopes,
address them all, fill in the post office slips and send them off.
This isn't a task that just takes a few moments. I am more than happy
to do this, but can only do it when it fits in. So delays are to be
expected. If anyone wants to take over this duty, you are welcome to
let me know if you want to have a turn to be the loco contact. I also
think this exercise should be reserved for LTS CDs.
