If the dvd is using the osgeo name I would like it to also use the osgeo branding; while it is attractive for conference organisers to dress up the dvd for their specific conference this is also a great opportunity to promote osgeo.
Another idea is for the live dvd project to enter incubation when it feels its process and community are up to the task.
