I personally consider DVDs to be smarter stickers, buttons or flyers,
i.e. promotional media that has digital content. In that context, the
impact of DVDs is similar to impact of stickers: they help improve
brand awareness at conferences and meetups. There is the other aspect
of enabling individuals who may otherwise not have the bandwidth to
download the distirbution and try it themselves. The freemedia
program tries to reach out to such people, but like you, I am not very
convinced about its utility in attracting long term users or
That said, there seems to be quite a bit of interest in DVDs (from
conference attendees and consequently, ambassadors) regardless of our
apprehensions and that says something even though we don't quite know
I don't think DVD production is that big a cost that we need to put so
much thought into potentially replacing it with something else. If
there's an alternative that needs evaluation (like a device that
allows people to plug USB sticks in and copy a bootable distribution
copy, that sounds like a nice engineering project), we should bring it
up first, try it and then decide if DVD production is putting cost
pressure on that alternative.
F23 is out and it's time to print new media(CD/DVD) for distribution
across APAC regions. Is anyone already doing it? If not, I'm coordinating
this task, I'd like to know the total requirement for such media. A count
from last couple of years will be helpful.

I am Dhanesh Sabane, a computer science student from Pune, Maharashtra.
I've been a Fedora user since only a couple of months and it didn't take
long for the Fedora community to woo me. :)
I'm genuinely interested in being a integral part of the community and
would love to establish liaison with other contributors. I've a FAS
account  which, I'm sure, will fill up with a huge list of
contributions with the help of the community.
Fedora packaging has especially caught my eye and right after I'm done
with my exams, I'll be looking forward to learning more about Packaging
and contributing to the Fedora Project. I'll also be looking for
mentors in the package maintainers field and I would really appreciate
it if anyone is willing to take up that role. :P
I'm currently associated with Mozilla as a *Firefox Student Ambassador*
and as a *Support Volunteer*. You'll find my contribution story on my
Looking forward to working in collaboration and helping the Fedora
Project to grow further.
Until then, think open! :)

Now that Fedora 23 is released , we should plan for release parties.
We are (me and Ratnadeep) planning organize the Bangalore release party.
The first thing would be a place for it. So If anyone has a place to
host the party in Bangalore (an engineering collage would be an ideal
place) or interested to help for organizing the same, please let us know.
