[Marketing] [Live-demo] Funding of LiveDVD/USB for conferences.


I have a local supplier already identified, and they are willing to test before production on DVD/USB creation.

Ok, so much for getting any more funds out of the OSGEO side, but I'll copy the marketing list anyway and see what happens.

Thanks for the pointer to the Marketing list.

The USB stick version is the same ISO as the DVD just made into a
bootable usb. We have a schedule to finish 6.5 by Mid February
well in time for Foss4gNA. The trickiest part about usb sticks is
finding a vendor in the US who can actually make them bootable -
we failed in Denver and I spent the week (with volunteers) re-
doing all of them.
I can provide you with the companies we have used in the past for
DVDs and USBs.

OSGeo does not usually pay for DVDs or USB sticks for
conferences, especially not a FOSS4G where it ought to come from
the admission fee.
Marketing committee is the place to discuss.
