Me and some others received a request from Remya Reghu to send him a
DVD with openSUSE. Now I'd love to do that, but afaik nothing is
organized for this and sending it from the Netherlands is a wee bit
So I have two questions for yah ambasadors:
- Does the Indian Ambassador team have something arranged for this?
In that case I can send one or more of you the address of dear Remya
so you can send him a DVD. I have, btw, already asked him if it is

We're right now producing openSUSE DVDs to give away - but due to the

we can send e.g. 100 DVDs for distribution.
We *could* set this up, maybe find sponsors for it - either local or
international. In some countries with bad network it might be worth

with Git especially) and possibly additional software (eg codecs, if
it's legal in said country).
It's my understanding that some countries have a vendor that burns and
ships openSUSE media for a nominal fee. India included. Perhaps we
should set up a page listing these vendors or individual contacts in
regions that people can reference? Just an idea.
There may be some problems with using Novell brand. The re-sellers might
advertise themselves saying:
Novell approved openSUSE re-seller.
When in practice they are not. However, it may be just that I am being
