Lorenzo, Oscar and others,

Has there been budget set aside to print the LiveDVD and hand out to all 
delegates at foss4g2010? (as was the case for 2009).

If that is the case, then we will have a very compelling reason for 
project owners to work on the liveDVD, and I will give my personal 
commitment to work on the packaging efforts of the liveDVD, and while I 
can't speak for the other team members of the liveDVD, I expect that 
they will continue to contribute too.

This mutual commitment to LiveDVD goals will help both of us producing a 
compelling liveDVD and foss4g experience.

PS, I suggest also setting up a mutual commitment between foss4g and the 
WMS shootout, and probably a Desktop shootout too.
