Can the archives also mirror the source and documentation CDs instead of
just the installable binaries?

Vellore Satyanarayana Somasundaram is in the process of estimating the
costs, time, etc., invloved in printing tech/GNU T-Shirts for
distribution here. (-: Somu, are you listening?
I'm also thinking of starting a beanie-doll business which sells GNUs,
Bunnies and Chucks (eh? what did I hear? you want tux-the-chicken too?

Thats how it was, during the good old days of Dr.P.Sriram attending the
LUG meets. Generally we would all be eagerly waiting to hear Dr.P.Sriram
talk and at the right moment some random luser (no offenses meant) would
ask DPS to burn a copy of "Linux 6.1"(sic) and he would burn it for
*free* (yes, free as in free beer!)
But that was when we used to meet at IITM's Computer center. I donot
know if aero has a CD-Burner. Even if it does, I donot know who would be
able to take responsibility / authorisation to access it.
Someone can bring a computer (preferably a laptop) with a CD-Writer to
every meet. This would help us in two ways:
* we can write CDs during meets.
* We can use the laptop/box for demoing.
But this also involves other complications such as getting permits to
bring in the box inside the campus, willingness of the owner of the box
to let ppl format/install stuff, etc., </my 0.02>
