Hi Yves,
In the past there has been support (at board level) to pay for printing 
of USBs/DVDs, but there hasn't been a volunteer ready to write a 
proposed process and for processing payment requests.

If you can find someone willing to administer OSGeo-Live funding 
requests, I expect you will find funding for DVDs/USBs.

-- Thinking about our French OSGeo family today --
