We make last year's materials available to new members who want to receive 
materials immediately.  TeX Live 6 is in the debugging stage of development 
- scheduling shipping is still somewhat vague at this time...perhaps

Oh yes, I believe so, though I'm not the one to ask.  Our tex-live@tug.org 
team answers all of the technical-related questions:)

Yes, we do!  We have an Institutional Membership available which includes 
up to seven members.  The benefits are much the same as the individual 
membership in terms of materials and discounts at the annual conference, 
however we also provide a free listing in TUGboat during the institutions 
membership year.  We encourage Institutional Memberships as they really do 
provide TUG with an important show of support for the software et. 
al..  The cost is $500.

above questions.
