[Marketing] OSGeo Live DVDs for Conferencia Internacional de Software Libre

Dear members of the marketing committee,

While attending FOSS4G-AR [1], I was asked, as OSGeo representative, to help the organizers of the upcoming FOSS4G event in Cuba, "Conferencia Internacional de Software Libre" [2], with some OSGeo Live DVDs. The DVDs will be used for the practical sessions and for OSGeo project promotion. Now, I'm not sure if the committee can approve such request or the board should decide on that. The cost of DVDs should be minor. However, as the time is really short, and it seems that is not wise to send a parcel with DVDs directly to Cuba due to long waiting time at the customs, a rapid courier service provider should be used. For that we have the contact address of an participant from Brazil. How should the Cuba organizers proceed on this? Is my request enough? Should the OSGeo board approve the request (just to be on the safe side, I have added the request on the Thursday board meeting agenda [3])?.

As a personal note, I was very impressed by our Latin America community enthusiasm and dedication and I strongly support this request.

Thank you,
