CD Distribution

As an Xubuntu user and a Fedora Ambassador who handles CD distribution on
the US West Coast, it's not a stupid idea.

It would take volunteers to maintain it, a budget to provide CDs to people
by mail, and this speaks to perhaps Xubuntu tapping into the Ubuntu LoCo
groups to help with this (if Xubuntu users aren't active in the LoCos
already) by having Xubuntu disks available to those folks going to LUG
meetings and other GNU/Linux events.

[Also, is this where this discussion should take place? The Development
Discussion list? ]

I'd be open to helping organize this, because Xubuntu is probably the best
of the *buntus, as far as I'm concerned.
