[tug-board] Re: Bulk orders of the TeX Live CDROM

Dear Karl Berry
Thank you very much for dealing with this order.
To answer your questions:
>how many copies do you want and where will they
I would like 20 copies.
Since you ask about distribution, I will tell you. However, I'm not at
all sure that I should be _obliged_ to tell you this, in order that you
provide me with the the CDs. Surely that would make more work for both
>From time to time I meet someone who would like a copy of TeX on a CD-
ROM. If I can, I lend them a copy, but it would suit me better, and
them also I think, if I could let them have a copy of their own. This
last happened Friday last week. As I get to know more Linux users, this
will happen more frequently.

>directly at all.
If TUG is able to give me copies, I will only too gladly give them to
others. But if TUG charges me then, reluctantly, I will have to charge
I understand that the license on some software on the CD prohibits sale
Please would you tell me how much I will have to pay for 20 CDs. This
is, I estimate, the number I will pass on (or sell at cost) in the
course of a year.
My original request was made about two weeks ago. I very much hope that
this order can be fulfilled within a further two weeks.
I do appreciate that you are donating your time, to deal with this
request. I want the CDs so that I can pass them on to existing and new
users of TeX. I am sure this is a goal you approve of.
yours most sincerely
