If there is an easy way for TUG to provide me with the contacts from whom
we need a specific authorization, I would appreciate a lot. 

If some of them don't want to let us distribute their tool, we'd obviously
need to have a modified version. In any case, I would jump on your proposal
of updating the CD for this project. 

We need to give the master by the end of June, to ensure that the 2050
copies are done and shipped by mid-July. Technically, the best would
certainly be to get a binary image file, so that the copier can just make a
bit to bit copy.

I will contact Art Ogawa as soon as possible.

Thank you so much for your help.
