I don't think we have any quite yet. Next year, definitely :/ [But
someone else should feel to correct me.]

This sounds great.

I got this done on about 4 working days notice for LWE, including
couriered delivery. If the conference starts on Aug. 1st, that means
we need to decide by roughly the 25th (22nd would be better.) Cost
would be fairly high- somewhere in the neck of $1.1K for 2K CDs, which
might be a problem. We can of course put OSCON content on the CD if
they want to defer our costs.

Hrm. I'd like to play with this, but I can promise nothing in this
time frame. Did you have any ideas on how you wanted to do it?
