Hi Dave,

How did it work for FOSS4G2007?  If this worked well I would be keen to use
this for the general presentation track. As the Academic track has to be
peer reviewed.

Some people will be happy to download an ISO after
the conference, so they don't need the CD in the
delegate bag. You could add an option to the registration
system for people to indicate if they want a conference
CD/DVD mailed to them after the conference, and have
that option cost 'a few dollars more'.

How did it work for FOSS4G2007, or how do people
want to make it work for 2008?
