(In case it's not clear, what I'm asking about here is going beyond the few who've asked, e.g. sending out a mail to the "discuss" list offering pay-your-own-way shirts. Because, to me, it doesn't seem right to allow a few non-Where people to get them, when I'd made it clear that these shirts were not going to be generally available.)

Subject: [VisCom] More about shirts...
I've now gotten a few requests for OSGeo shirts by people not attending Where and willing to pay their own costs. I told the first person "sure, no prob!" -- but then I got nervous.
One the one hand, it would be nice to allow them to do this, and I'm willing to add their orders in and handle the organizing. And we would even get a 5% discount if the order exceeds $1000.
But on the other hand, selling shirts is a potential fund-raising activity, and so we might lose future revenue by doing this. A small amount, to be sure, but I don't think it is within my authority to decide this.
What does the Board think?
