I think this may have been proposed before, but I'll say it just in case it 

I would like to propose that LA covers expenses for CD pressing, with 
labelling and sleeves. This will allow us to distribute professional-looking 
CDs at shows like CeBIT and Software Freedom Day, so that our software can be 
taken more seriously and not viewed as the work of amateurs. It will also 
head off questions like, "does this have a virus?" and "is this legal?".

Examples of CDs that we can distribute in this manner include The OpenDisc and 
Project Gutenberg.

If we can do this at a national level, in collaboration with a CD reproduction 
company, we could have an efficient service for all community groups.

too-simple) syntax, they are easy to find and change."
